One of Europe's most exciting prospects, Christian Eriksen, has turned down a move to Bayer Leverkusen in order to fulfil his footballing ambitions.

Could his ambitions be to play in the Premier League?

Many clubs have been very interested in signing the Denmark international - and for good reason. He is a player with a keen eye, he sees things others do not, he is great technically and can score goals. He is a born playmaker.

Although the midfielder is only 21, he has a lot of experience, playing 109 games for Ajax and representing Denmark on an impressive 36 occasions.

The midfielder's agent told reporters after Eriksen turned down a move to Leverkusen: "Christian will only leave Ajax on sporting grounds, that's his main criteria."

Zenit St Petersburg have also offered the Danish midfielder a lucrative contract to lure him away from the Amsterdam Arena, but they had no such luck. Liverpool are also interested with the playmaker and there has been speculation Tottenham are also in the running for his services. 

Liverpool fans should not be happy, though, as the playmaker had this to say to ESPN reporters: "If I leave, I have to go to a club that is bigger than Ajax in every way.

"But no clubs like that have shown interest yet. I've read a lot about it, but heard nothing from the club."

This then seems Eriksen truly wants to be a great, playing for the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United etc.

But a move to Liverpool would not be the worst thing in the world; they are a massive club whom have massive potential and are looking to reclaim former glory under the management of Brendan Rodgers.
