Report: Newcastle have now approached 'outstanding' four-time title winning midfielder

Newcastle United are among the teams who have tried to sign former Tottenham midfielder, Christian Eriksen, as he closes in on a return to English football this winter.

Eriksen is seeking a new club after rules in Italy made it impossible for him to return to action for Inter. It follows his cardiac arrest in the Euros, from which he now appears to have made a full recovery from. It is believed Eriksen is in talks with Brentford, with The Times claiming the Bees have offered the Danish midfielder a six-month contract.

However, within that report, it’s also suggested that Newcastle have explored the possibility of bringing Eriksen to St James’ Park in January. It’s claimed the Magpies, along with Leicester, have made an approach for the talented former Ajax star.

Eriksen – who was branded ‘fantastic’ and ‘amazing’ by Mauricio Pochettino – has over 200 Premier League appearances to his name already. In that time, he directly contributed to 108 goals, with 51 scored by himself. He sealed a move to Inter Milan after becoming disillusioned with life at Spurs.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have explored a number of options this January. They will be able to offer Eriksen an enticing financial package. However, like other players, Eriksen needs to weigh up the option of being in a relegation battle with the Toon.

TBR’s View: A Fit Eriksen Is A Game Changer For Newcastle Or Anyone

What happened in the summer shocked everyone. However, it’s great to see Christian Eriksen back and raring to go, as long as he gets the all clear.

With regards to Newcastle, it’s a no brainer. He immediately improves them. Eriksen brings quality, experience, and big-club mentality to the fold. And while defence might be a priority for Eddie Howe, there is no doubt that Eriksen would be welcome on Tyneside.

It does appear Brentford have the edge here. But if money appeals to the Dane, then PIF have the advantage.
