We at the Football Transfer Tavern are so used to hearing a Premier League club linked to Christian Eriksen that we no longer place down our pints when rumours like the one in the Daily Mirror today reach us.
It is now Liverpool who are being linked with the 21 year old after they were impressed by his performance over the recent international break. The player of course has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs and is also attracting attention elsewhere in Europe with several La Liga clubs also willing to make a bid for the player come the summer.
Now Brendan Rodgers has thrown his hat into the ring for the playmaker and will be approaching Ajax in the near future about the player. The Mirror claim that the club think so much of the young Dane that they are willing to make a firm offer for him as soon as they are able.
As we all know by now, Eriksen is available for transfer in the summer after turning down the offer of a new deal with Ajax and is entering the final 12 months of his deal meaning the club will sell him now and would not even consider losing such a talent for free in a years’ time. Of course all of this will help to reduce the fee for the player yet sadly for Liverpool will only increase the number of clubs interested.
