West Ham United scouts present at Denmark international game amid Christian Eriksen interest
West Ham United scouts were present to watch Denmark’s clash against Austria on Monday night [June 6] amid interest in Christian Eriksen.
The Hammers have been linked with a move for the Brentford playmaker after he had a brilliant spell with the west London club after suffering a cardiac arrest during Euro 2020 last summer.
But the club have now taken further steps to cement their interest by sending a scout to watch the game in Austria at the Ernst Happel Stadium, according to an image shared by FA intermediary Paul O’Keefe.
Other Premier League clubs Tottenham and Manchester United as well as several European clubs were also present, with the 30-year-old believed to be the focus of attention.
It’s previously been reported by ExWHUemployee [June 5] that any move for Eriksen would be unlikely due to the competition for his signature, but it seems as though the club aren’t giving up any time soon.
If you want things done, sometimes you have to do them yourself and that’s what West Ham seem to be doing by ensuring they’re in the conversation when it comes to his future.
Eriksen wants to play Champions League football and that isn’t something the Hammers can offer him, however they have the financial backing a perfect spot for him in their starting lineup that would suit.
But the player has got an incredible relationship with Tottenham, who seem favourites for his signature at the moment, as well as a great feeling of affection towards Brentford who gave him the chance to get back into football.
However if Moyes wants the player, then the club must do all they can to get a deal done. There are plenty of upsides to the club right now and they’d kick themselves if they didn’t at least try to get something done.
Watching him turn out for his country, where he started in his favoured number ten role, means they get to see exactly what he’ll bring up close and personal.
