Premier League club Brentford have held talks with Christian Eriksen about the possibility of signing the Denmark midfielder.

Eriksen had his contract cancelled by Inter Milan last month after being told he could not play in Serie A due to being fitted with an implanted cardioverter defibrillator – a type of pacemaker – after tragically collapsing during Euro 2020.

While that regulation exists in Italy, no such rule is in place in the Premier League and it is understood a number of clubs are keen to sign Eriksen who would be available on a free transfer.

Brentford have held talks with Eriksen, and the club have one of Eriksen’s countrymen, Thomas Frank, at the helm as well as a strong Danish contingent in the locker room.

Christian Eriksen, who is still only 29 years old, is keen to resume his playing career and says it is his “dream” to play for Denmark at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar having been hospitalised due to suffering cardiac arrest in Denmark’s opening Euro 2020 match in June 2021.

Eriksen won the Italian title with Inter Milan last season but has not played following his collapse.

The Bees were promoted to the Premier League this season and sit 14th in what is their first top-flight campaign since 1946-47.
