Chelsea are being linked with a 'mega-money' move for Ajax starlet Christian Eriksen, according to reports.

The Danish midfielder has been on the radar of a handful of Barclays Premier League, with Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United all keen to add the player to their ranks.

However, talkSPORT claims Chelsea are ready to step-up their interest in the prodigious talent, with the Blues set to dispatch scouts to watch the player in the upcoming European Champions.

A full international, Eriksen has been drafted into the U21 side for the tournament host nation, and is regarded as the future of Danish football and the most talented player for the country since the Laudrup brothers.

Dennis Bergkamp has highly recommended the player after noticing his talent through the Ajax academy, and Guus Hiddink, who is heavily tipped to become the next Chelsea manager, is reportedly an admirer.


Despite recently signing a long-term contract at the Amsterdam Arena, Ajax's financial situation is still thought to be an issue for the Eredivisie outfit, and Chelsea might be able to tempt the Godenzonen with a big offer.

With reports in the Daily Mail that Chelsea are also in talks with Belgian starlet Eden Hazard, it appears Roman Abramovich is looking to build for the future at Stamford Bridge.
