Anfield may currently be home to the Premier League’s top side, but the fans aren’t resting on their laurels yet. There’s still work to be done between now and the end of the season, and then even more to be done in the summer, and in the aftermath of beating Spurs on Sunday, two pundits have called for Eriksen to be poached from the Lilywhites.
NEW: Pundits call on Liverpool to sign Christian Eriksen this summer.https://t.co/ZTR6jgbPyj

Former Everton star Gary Stevens and ex-Liverpool academy man Dominic Matteo both spoke to Stadium Astro (transcript via The Express) claiming that the Danish midfielder would be an excellent fit at Anfield, and it’s hard to argue with their claims. Tottenham’s magic man has been far from magic since his contract situation started to gain publicity, and it looks increasingly likely he’ll be off this summer.
At the moment, the favourites to sign the midfield maestro are Real Madrid, however, if Liverpool can get in with a decent bid early on then they stand as good a chance as anyone at taking the midfielder off of Spurs’ hands. Whilst that move would kill the Lilywhites inside and make Eriksen public enemy number one, you can’t doubt that he’d be a quality fit at Anfield, with his ability to add goals and assists from midfield making him one of the best players in the Premier League.
You can read the Kopites’ verdict on the Eriksen talk here:
I'd have him AND Dele. midfield sorted for 5 or 6 years.

I would love to, but Spurs wont allow this to happen.

Honestly Erikson will be very good with our system of play and will score many goals

This would be something big

100x better than Henderson & Milner

I mean, it would be lovely, but it's just not going to happen.

Whilst everyone knows Liverpool signing Eriksen is unlikely, it’s still something that the Reds would love and if the opportunity arises in the summer then it shouldn’t be missed.
