With his short contract set to expire at the end of the month, Manchester United, Tottenham and Newcastle have all been linked to the star. But it was Brentford who took a chance on the Dane after his cardiac arrest during the Euros put him out of action.

Brentford have already made an offer that will immediately make him the most expensive player in their history, but Eriksen is taking his time to decide, it seems.

Asked if he had made up his mind on where to play in August, his response was quite evasive.

He told journalists after the game against Austria: “Summer holidays. That’s what I have, first and foremost now.

“Then it’s time for the family and then get the batteries recharged and then take it up from there.

“So the answer to all those questions is summer vacations, summer vacations and summer vacations.”

Pressed on if he would think about his future while taking time off, the midfielder said that he would still be looking at his phone to see if something exciting is on.

He added: “No, of course I cannot (not think about it). My family also knows this well, and I keep my eye on my phone.

“It’s on after all, and then my agent knows me well enough to know he’s calling if there’s anything exciting. If it’s not exciting, he does not call.”

Eriksen scored four goals and created one in the 11 games he played for Brentford, but his influence cannot only be measured in statistics with his arrival ending an eight-game run without a win.
