Christian Eriksen's career at the top of the game appeared to be over after he suffered a cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark at the Euro 2020 finals last summer.

Yet it appears he could be set to make a remarkable return to England's Premier League, after it emerged several clubs are ready to offer the former Tottenham midfielder a route back into the game.

Eriksen left Inter Milan as Italian authorities do not allow players to play in their league with the cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) device he has had implanted last summer, but that rule does not apply in England.

Now Sky Sports are reporting that Brentford are among a number of Premier League clubs interested in giving Eriksen a chance to resume his career.

Eriksen, 29, stated last month that he wants to get back on the field as soon as possible, as he has a dream of playing for Denmark in the World Cup finals at the end of 2022.

"My goal is to play in the World Cup in Qatar. I want to play. That's been my mindset all along. It's a goal, a dream," Eriksen told Danish broadcaster DR. "Whether I'll be picked is another thing, but it's my dream to come back.

"Physically, I'm back in top shape. I want to prove I've moved on and that I can play on the national team again.

"It's up to the manager to assess my level but my heart is not an obstacle."
