Anfield to make move for Danish international.
Liverpool reportedly lead the race to sign Ajax starlet Christian Eriksen according to ESPN.

With the Danish international set to see his current deal to expire in the summer of 2014 it seems plausible that Ajax will now look to cash in on the young playmaker to avoid the player’s value steadily declining from this summer onwards.
ESPN claim that Liverpool are readying a bid for Eriksen and must now believe their chances of securing the flair player have significantly increased following his decision to not sign a new contract extension that had been made to him by the Amsterdam club.
Eriksen has scored 26 goals and provided 48 assists over the course of the past two and a half seasons and has proven himself able to make an impact at the highest level, impressing in Champions League action this term.
Ajax may well demand a high price for the youngster but should be well aware that most top talents who ply their trade in the Eredivisie do in time move on to one of Europe’s ‘Big’ leagues and 20 year old Eriksen may well feel that it’s time to make the leap.
Liverpool may well see Eriksen as an ideal long term replacement for Steven Gerrard and Brendan Rodgers could certainly do with a goal-scoring presence in his midfield.
