Christian Eriksen should turn his back on major interest this summer to stay with Brentford, according to Darren Bent.

The Danish midfielder has been the main character in a football fairytale this term after bouncing back from his cardiac arrest last summer at the Euros to compete at the highest level once again.

After leaving Inter Milan, Eriksen signed a six-month deal with Thomas Frank’s side during the January transfer window where the playmaker hoped to build up his fitness and get back to enjoying his football.

He’s certainly done that with a goal and three assists in nine appearances for the Bees, capturing the attention of plenty of clubs in the process.

Tottenham have been linked with a move to bring the 30-year-old back to north London, but according to Arsenal fan Bent, the playmaker should stay put at Brentford.

Speaking on talkSPORT Drive, Bent said: “He’s transformed Brentford’s form. They were having a bit of wobble and he brought some real quality.

“It was just fantastic to see Christian Eriksen back.

“I hope he’s at Brentford next season as well.”

Asked if he’d have him at Arsenal, Bent said: “Absolutely. I hope he stays at Brentford [though].

“Sometimes the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. For him, Brentford have given him an opportunity and he’s repaid them with some fantastic performances.

“He doesn’t need to go anywhere else.”

Responding to Goldstein’s comment that he’s better than Brentford, Bent replied: “Maybe, but I want him to stay because Brentford is nice.

“Does he need that added pressure? He’s won something already, he’s won Serie A. That’s enough.

“I think it’s a fantastic story, a real feel-good story. I like him at Brentford.”
