Everyone loves a bit of drama here at the Football Transfer Tavern and The Independent has provided exactly that recently with the denials from Ajax over a ‘done deal’ with Liverpool for star performer Christian Eriksen.
The player has as we all know by now refused to sign a new deal with the Dutch club and is now looking for a move away – and has no shortage of offers. Given his performances and the fact that the 21-year-old is one of the hottest properties in football at the minute this is not exactly a shock.
It had been claimed that Liverpool were set to capture the player with a deal for the youngster who has been at Ajax since the age of 16 all but done, however now the club have strongly moved to refute these rumours and noted to Danish TV2 that: “We will send out a press release when there is an agreement, only a deal between Ajax and the club.”
“So at this time there is no agreement between Ajax and Liverpool.
“Whether we negotiate or not, we do not comment on transfer rumours.
“Right now Christian Eriksen is focused on very important games we have to play at the end of the season.”
Liverpool may still feel that they are in pole position to land the player who will certainly be leaving in the summer and anyone who knows Brendan Rodgers knows he will not let a top target go without a fight.
