Liverpool 'locked in battle' over Danish wonderkid - reports

Liverpool are reportedly 'locked in battle' with AC Milan over Danish starlet Christian Eriksen.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who has earned rave reviews for his performances at both international and domestic level, had previously been earmarked as a star of the future at Ajax by Dennis Bergkamp and Johan Cruyff before graduating to the senior side in 2010.

Compared to Danish legends Brian and Michael Laudrupp, the teenager quickly began to attract interest from around Europe, with Liverpool one of the leading clubs in the race for the player's signature.

Now, talkSPORT claims the Reds are set to go head-to-head with the Serie 'A' outfit in a bidding war for the player, with Kenny Dalglish eager to secure Eriksen's future as a star of the future at Anfield.

Reports from Italy that the San Siro have recently entered the race for the player is only likely to fuel the interest of Liverpool further, with the Merseysiders looking to plot their rise back to the top domestically and the Rossoneri eager to maintain their position as champions.


After failing in their efforts to land the player before the close of the summer transfer window, Liverpool will be in no doubt over the challenges that lie ahead when trying to secure a deal, but good relations between the two parties after the purchase of Luis Suarez from the Godenzonen back in January could be an advantage.
