Schoots: Liverpool link a big compliment

Liverpool target Christian Eriksen has put an imminent switch away from Ajax on the back burner, insisting he still has much to learn in the Eredivisie.

The 21-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, but he insists he is fully focused on continuing his development under Frank de Boer.

Eriksen recently admitted that it was flattering to be mentioned in the same breath as Liverpool, though he has no immediate desire to leave the Amsterdam Arena.

"When I say I am happy with where I am, I mean that seriously," the Denmark international told Ajax Life. "I feel that at Ajax I can still become a much better player.

"I do not want to be judged on what I can achieve, but based on my current performances I still have plenty to learn at Ajax."

Eriksen's agent Martin Schoots stressed that whilst talk of being on Brendan Rodgers' wanted list is good for his client, he backs the youngster's decision to ignore interest from Anfield, and remain with Ajax for the time being.

"We can only say that it is a big compliment [to be linked with Liverpool]," Schoots explained. But Chris is busy with Ajax and Denmark and he has very consciously chosen to be at Ajax and to develop."

All eyes will now be on the Dutch champions when the transfer window reopens, to see if they can stand firm and keep Eriksen, if a bid from one of Europe's biggest clubs arrives in January.
