Manchester United have made an offer to secure the signing of Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen, though we are not the only Premier League keeping an eye on the situation.
Tottenham Hotspur are in pole position to sign Eriksen this summer as 11/10 favourites, with Manchester United and Newcastle at 3/2 and 18/1 respectively.

Eriksen joined Brentford in January for the remainder of the season and proved he can still play at the highest level, in the Premier League, so it comes as no surprise that Erik ten Hag would like to take him to Old Trafford ahead of the new season.
The 30-year-old scored a goal and registered four assists in his 11 appearances for the newly promoted Bees. The six-month contract will soon expire and he will be free to join a new club, after turning down Brentford’s offer to stay at the club.
Last summer, however, Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 and that led to question marks over whether he could still play the game at a professional level. He trained with FC Chiasso and Ajax reserves prior to joining Brentford, which means Ten Hag got a close up look at his levels after such a traumatic experience at the European Championships.
Eriksen was released by Inter Milan because Serie A bans players with pacemakers. This was after the Dane was fitted with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.
With the midfielder set to leave Brentford, it’s time to talk about where he could end up next and there’s really only two destinations that look likely — between Tottenham and United.

Eriksen has revealed he won’t rush a decision on his future, as he explained after Denmark played Austria in the UEFA Nations League.
“No, and they know that too,” Eriksen told reporters.
“There are many criteria and many different things inside such a decision. Sometimes it goes fast in football, other times a little slower. You are not in control of it yourself. I have to make the best decision and not rush anything through.
“My phone stays on, but I also know my agent well enough to know that he only calls if there’s something exciting.”
