Emiliano Marcondes has had a tough start to his Brentford career as he struggled for regular minutes in his debut season in England, and was restricted to only three league starts during the 2018/19 campaign.
The Bees sent the Dane out on loan to FC Midtjylland in the first half of the last season and that paid off as he featured regularly for them.
Having returned to the Championship side at the start of this year, Thomas Frank finally gave regular opportunities to his compatriot.
The midfielder made 25 league appearances for the Bees last season, managing two goals and seven assists in the process.
Marcondes’ performances have convinced the Championship side to offer him a new contract and this has been confirmed by the 25-year-old’s representative, Antoni Alexandrakis, with his current deal will run down after the end of this campaign.
“We have received a contract offer, which we are currently chewing on. There are ongoing negotiations, but nothing has been signed, and there are many enquiries about Emiliano,” Alexandrakis told Danish outlet BT.
The agent is also pleased with his client’s progress with the English club in 2020.
“Emiliano’s development at Brentford has been really good lately. He showed his worth last season, so even though it was not good in the first few years due to injuries, he is now coming after it, and you can also see that the club will extend with him,” he explained.
“The fans like him, he likes the club, and so we have to see if we can agree on an extension.”
Marcondes has eight appearances in all competitions for Brentford this season, which includes three league starts.
