Liverpool defender Daniel Agger believes compatriot Christian Eriksen would be an ideal summer transfer window acquisition for the Reds, and has urged his employers to make a move for the Ajax star.

Eriksen has established himself as one of the most coveted young talents in European football since breaking into the Ajax first-team and, along with Liverpool, the 21-year-old has also been linked with Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund.

The Denmark international is reported to have been identified by BVB as a potential for Mario Götze, who has agreed a transfer to Bayern Munich, and Frank de Boer has confirmed Jurgen Klopp has been in touch regarding Eriksen.

Agger, however, hopes Liverpool will heed his advice and make an attempt to bring Eriksen to Anfield, and claims the young midfielder is a perfect player to execute the philosophy instilled by Reds manager Brendan Rodgers.

"We want to play attacking football with the ball on the ground and that is exactly what Christian Eriksen is all about," Agger said, as reported by the Daily Mail.

"That is the kind of player we need. It all depends on which team he plays for.

"If he plays for a team who want to keep the ball on the ground, then the answer is yes - due to his passing, his runs and his hard work."

Despite his hope that Eriksen will arrive at Liverpool this summer, Agger has told his Denmark teammate to make his own decision on his future, rather than be influenced by the opinions of others.

"He has to do what he believes is best and no-one else but him should decide his future," Agger added.

"You must never listen to anyone else other than yourself."
