Borussia Dortmund are considering making a move for Ajax ace Christian Eriksen as a replacement for the departing Mario Gotze, according to reports.

It was announced yesterday that Gotze will leave Dortmund to join Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich in the summer in a deal worth €37 million.

The reigning Bundesliga champions - who go up against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals this evening - have already started eyeing up replacements for the 20-year-old starlet, and according to Bild have identified Eriksen as the man for the job.

The news of the German giant's interest in Eriksen will come as a blow to both Tottenham and Liverpool, both of whom are reportedly keen on the Danish international.

Eriksen has previously admitted he doesn't know where he will be next season and has rejected a new deal on offer to keep him in Amsterdam beyond 2014.

Both Liverpool and Spurs have been reportedly eyeing up a move for the midfield operator in the summer.

Spurs made a move for Porto's Joao Moutinho last summer but just missed out and are expected to be on the look-out for a midfielder this time round, while Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to add to his squad and mount a top-four charge next season.

Manchester City have also been linked with a move for Eriksen in the past.
