Liverpool 'target' Christian Eriksen holds talks with Borussia Dortmund
The Ajax midfielder is coveted by a number of clubs
Monday 13 May 2013
Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen has revealed talks have taken place over a possible move to Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.
The 21-year-old Denmark international has caught the eye of clubs across Europe with his performances this season, with Liverpool and Dortmund among those courting the player.
With just a year remaining on his contract, Ajax are set to cash in on Eriksen this summer and he admits he is tempted by a move to Germany.
"Dortmund are a club where I would like to play," he told De Telegraaf. "I think I would be a good fit there with the football there.
"Dortmund play nice, attacking football. The Bundesliga has never really been my preferred choice and a few years ago I would not even have considered it, but now I do.
"The competition is getting stronger and it is no coincidence the two Champions League finalists are German clubs.
"I know there has been contact between the two clubs, and both Ajax and Dortmund have already talked to my agent.
"I will consider all the clubs and quietly make a decision. I want clarity when preparing for the new season, that's the best thing - for everyone."
Eriksen is being lined up by Dortmund as a replacement for Mario Gotze, who will join Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
