Christian Eriksen is closing in on a return to the Premier League, with Brentford hoping to finalise a deal soon, and in the meantime he has been training with former club Ajax‘s reserve team to build up his fitness.
In images shared online, the Denmark international, who hasn’t played competitively since collapsing on the pitch at Euro 2020 last summer, appeared to be taking a full part in training.
It is understood the former Tottenham Hotspur and Inter player has had offers from clubs in England, Germany and the Netherlands, but Brentford appear to be in pole position, according to various reports.
Eriksen praises Ajax
Former Netherlands international John Heitinga is the current boss of Jong Ajax and Eriksen has spoken on the Dutch club’s website about his happiness and gratitude for the opportunity to train with them.
“I am very happy to be here. At Ajax I know the people, it feels like coming home because I was here for so long,” said Eriksen.
“All facilities are available here and with Jong Ajax I can train at a high level in a group. That’s the perfect foundation for me at the moment.
“I want to be at my best again as soon as possible so that when I find a new club, I can perform well there as quickly as possible.”
