West Ham United more likely to complete Christian Eriksen transfer than Tottenham

Christian Eriksen is more likely to join West Ham this summer than he is to return to Tottenham, according to CBS journalist Ben Jacobs.

Eriksen, 30, is set to be a free agent at the end of June as he only signed a short-term deal when he joined Brentford back in the January transfer window.

He’s been strongly linked with a move to another Premier League club but Jacobs feels that Spurs are less likely to sign the Denmark international than the others who are keen.

While that’s good news for West Ham, Jacobs has named several other top-flight teams in England who are keen to sign the midfield playmaker.

“Other clubs that are looking at him that are a bit newer: Leicester City, who considered a January move, and Leeds United and Newcastle. But Manchester United are the most advanced,” Jacobs told The Football Terrace, as transcribed by The Boot Room.

He added: “So Manchester United and Brentford are in the mix. Behind them at the moment, but they could advance in the next week: Leicester, Leeds, there’s talk of West Ham United still as well. And Spurs is the least likely scenario.”

Please, Moysey

Eriksen would be an amazing signing.

We don’t care about his ties to the club in North London or the fact that he’s 30 years old, he’d be the best attacking player on the books at West Ham if David Moyes is able to sign him.

It won’t be easy to land the Denmark international, admittedly.

It feels as though half of the Premier League are in the hunt to sign him and you have to admit that Brentford is a likely club for Eriksen to play for next season.

Brentford gave Eriksen a big chance in January when they signed him after he left Inter Milan.

A lot of people though that his career would be over after he suffered an on-pitch cardiac arrest at the European Championships last year but one goal and four assists in 11 Premier League appearances for the Bees suggests he’s nowhere near done.

Eriksen can create chances in open play and from set-pieces while he’s also capable of scoring goals.

For a free transfer, he’d be an incredible signing.
