Manchester United have made a contract offer to Brentford midfielder Christian Eriksen.
The Dane's deal with the Bees runs to the end of this month.
The Athletic says United manager Erik ten Hag is eager to bolster his midfield ahead of the 2022-2023 season and would like to welcome Eriksen to Old Trafford on a free transfer. Eriksen trained under Ten Hag at Ajax as he prepared to return to action after his cardiac arrest last summer.
United will also have to fend off interest from other Premier League clubs as they pursue Eriksen.
Tottenham are said to be breathing down the neck of the Red Devils as they are eager to re-sign the Danish international.
Spurs also hold the upper hand having secured a place in the Champions League after pipping Arsenal at the post to claim fourth in the final week of the season.
