Liverpool target Christian Eriksen has been showered with praise by Ajax boss Martin Jol.

The Danish starlet has been earning rave reviews for his performances on both the domestic and international stage, with Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish heavily linked with a move for the player.

Eriksen has emerged as a Reds target after Damien Comolli, director of football strategy at Anfield, was made aware of the player's talent whilst in Amsterdam negotiating the deal to bring Luis Suarez to Liverpool.

Linked with a host of Barclays Premier League, La Liga and Serie 'A' outfits, Jol is aware that the player could quickly outgrow the Eredivisie but is keen for the player to flourish while he's still with the Godenzonen.

"In 18 months he'll be too big for Holland, he is already probably worth the most of any player in the Dutch League," Jol told the Sunday Times.

"As a No 10 he could be the best in Europe. Left foot, right foot, a trick, a shot, he has everything you need."

It's thought that the player will cost in the region of £15 million, although Liverpool appear willing to spend money after the arrival of NESV as the new owners.


Over £55 million was spent on strikers at Anfield in January, but Dalglish has hinted that more will be spent in the summer as the Liverpool legend looks to strengthen in other key areas.

However, Jol has sent a message to big-spending Manchester City, saying they should snap up the player at the first opportunity.

"If I had money like Manchester City I'd buy him right now and let him stay at Ajax. You've got the best talent in Europe and he's yours in a couple of years."

Liverpool won't want to miss out on the player without a fight though, and compatriot Daniel Agger could play a key role in persuading the player that Anfield should be his future home.
