Published 3 Comments

Ajax director of football Marc Overmars has confirmed Tottenham and Manchester City transfer target Christian Eriksen will not sign a new contract, and he expects him to explore his options this summer, according to talkSPORT.

The Denmark international is widely regarded as one of the top young players in Europe, and City, Spurs and Liverpool scouts have all watched him in recent months.

Eriksen was excellent as Ajax took a giant step towards the Eredivisie title with a 3-2 win over second-placed PSV Eindhoven at the weekend.

Ajax are gunning for a third consecutive Eredivisie trophy, and off the back of their two Danish playmakers - Eriksen and teenage sensation Viktor Fischer - the Dutch giants have been in sparkling form.

City and Spurs have both been interested in the past, while Liverpool, Inter Milan and AC Milan have also been linked with the 21-year-old Eriksen.

His contract in Amsterdam expires at the end of next season, and Overmars has revealed the Danish star will not be signing a new deal with the club.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Overmars said: "Christian has informed us that he will not sign a new contract now. I think he and his agent want to see what their options are in the summer."

The young playmaker was superb against City in the Champions League group stage, with watching Spurs and Liverpool scouts also thought to be impressed.
