Liverpool & Spurs still in the frame for £15m midfielder

Liverpool and Tottenham have been handed a boost in their respective transfer window pursuits of Christian Eriksen after Borussia Dortmund denied they have secured a deal for the Ajax midfielder.

Eriksen is one of the most highly-rated young talents in European football and appears destined to secure a high-profile transfer in the not too distant future, with moves to the Premier League or Bundesliga touted as possibilities.

Liverpool and Tottenham have both been credited with interest in the £15 million-rated Denmark international, although Borussia Dortmund have emerged as frontrunners for his signature this summer.

BVB are reported to have identified Erilksen as a possible replacement for Mario Götze, who has signed for Bayern Munich, with speculation the German club have already made a move for the 21-year-old.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc, however, is shocked at such suggestions, and claims no deal is in place to bring the Liverpool and Tottenham target to the Westfalenstadion.

"I have read [the Eriksen rumours] with amazement," Zorc told Ruhr Nachrichten.

This news may serve as a fillip for Brendan Rodgers and Andre Villas-Boas as they look to reinforce their respective Liverpool and Spurs squads before the transfer deadline in September.
