Christian Eriksen mulls over major contract offer from Everton as transfer races nears end

Everton have tabled a contract offer to Christian Eriksen as he gets set to decide his next club, according to The Times.

The newspaper have reported on their website that the big-name Danish international is mulling over his options with offers also coming from Leicester City and Newcastle.

It is widely thought that Eriksen will choose between Manchester United or Brentford where he spent the second half of the 2021-22 Premier League season.

Writing in their latest column for The Times, Jonathan Northcroft shared the latest as the transfer race appears to be finally nearing its end.

“Landing [Frenkie] De Jong could also help [Manchester] United in their pursuit of Christian Eriksen,” he wrote.

“The Dane, who is out of contract, is mulling over an array of offers including from Everton, Newcastle United, Leicester City and one to stay at Brentford.”

Perfect.

Eriksen is exactly the type of player that Everton will be going after.

With Financial Fair Play rules as tight as ever at Goodison Park, the chance to bring big names to the club for no transfer fee is simply too good to be true.

James Tarkowski is already signed on and looks set to be announced in early July as a Toffees player.

Eriksen will be much harder to get over the line though, no matter how much money Farhad Moshiri could put on the table for his services every single week.

London appears to be playing a big factor in his choice, although the move to Old Trafford is said to be tickling his fancy too, with no real mention of where Everton stand in this chase.

The offer is on the table, as it has been for weeks now and we can only sit back and hope.
