Wolves should consider reigniting Christian Eriksen interest this summer

Wolves are reported to be in the market for new midfielders in the summer.

The club currently have just three senior options for the middle of the park, and two could be on their way this summer.

Wolves are trying to tie Ruben Neves down to a new contract, but it’s very possible he could depart if the club receive a big offer.

And Joao Moutinho stands to leave as a free agent at the moment.

Fans are desperate for both players to stay, but Wanderers will be lucky if both do.

Wolves have been linked with replacements for the pair. The Athletic recently reported that Joao Palhinha and Matheus Nunes are on the club’s radar.

But perhaps Wolves ought to reignite their interest in a player who has really proven himself over the past few months.

The footballing world watched in horror last year as he collapsed due to a cardiac arrest playing for Denmark at Euro 2020.

It is a miracle that he is now back playing again and actually, Eriksen has been absolutely superb in Brentford’s push for Premier League survival.

He signed a contract with the Bees until the end of the season, and maybe Wolves ought to just keep their eye on him until the end of the season.

Eriksen could be a potential replacement for Moutinho at Wolves

In an ideal world, Moutinho will be staying at Wolves for at least another season.

But who knows where his head is at right now. It’s possible he’ll fancy a return to Portugal, or a different kind of challenge.

Wolves were said to be looking at signing Eriksen in January 2021 when he was struggling for form.

Eriksen is back in the Premier League now, and he’s helped the Bees win three of their last four games.

He assisted against Burnley, and also grabbed his first goal for the club against Chelsea.

After that games, Thomas Frank described Eriksen as ‘a top player’ and the situation as ‘an ongoing fairytale’ (Telegraph).

He was also on target twice for his country during the international break.

It is amazing to see him looking back to his old self again. And it would be really good to see him gracing Molineux in the summer if Moutinho did depart.
