There is drama here in the Football Transfer Tavern as talkSPORT claim that that Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are the latest clubs to express an interest in Ajax’s Christian Eriksen.
The player has been on the radar of Sir Alex Ferguson and also Liverpool have a long-term interest in the player who has now netted 11 times this season. At 21-years-old it is clear that Eriksen’s best years are yet to come and given that the player has made it clear his future does not lie at Ajax it seems a host of Premier League clubs are hoping they can get the highly coveted signature of the youngster.
Brendan Rodgers has long been a fan of the player and scouts have been to watch him several times this season. Given that Eriksen will be available in the summer which Arsenal and Liverpool amongst others have made it clear a major rebuild of their squads will take place, it seems the ideal time for Eriksen to make his move to England.
The fee for the player looks set to increase as despite his contract situation being less than favourable for Ajax, the more clubs that show an interest the more the Dutch club will be able to get for the player.
Which English side has the best chance of snaring Eriksen this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
