Liverpool handed Eriksen boost

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have been handed a potential boost in their pursuit of Ajax star Christian Eriksen.

The Danish starlet has been heavily linked with a move away from the Amsterdam Arena, with both the Reds and AC Milan linked with a move for the 21-year-old. Indeed, The Daily Star reported a fortnight ago that the Italian giants were set to make the first move with a £18million bid for the player.

A switch to the San Siro is yet to materialise, meaning Liverpool still have a chance to land the player if they wish to pursue the signature.

And, Ajax boss Frank De Boer has now revealed that the club has plans in place to replace the player if he does leave this summer.

"It is not possible for us to replace Eriksen by buying a player of similar quality,” he told De Telegraaf.

"So it is better for us to look to replace him from within and I am thinking about people like Lasse Schone, Davy Klaassen, Thulani Serero and [Riechedly] Bazoer."

Eriksen made 33 appearances for the Godenzonen last season, scoring 10 goals in 33 appearances, as well as impressing both domestically and in Europe.

Liverpool have already added attacking options this summer, with Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas moving to Merseyside in the transfer window.

And, whilst Eriksen would be working from a deeper role, his creativity would be a major asset for the likes of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge at Anfield.
