Beaten Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund are to start their rebuilding progress with the signing of Ajax star Christian Eriksen for £10million, according to the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old Dane has been hot property across the continent for a number of years now after emerging as one of the best young talents in Holland, but could move on the cheap this summer with only a year remaining on his contract.

Liverpool were keen to add the skillful attacker to their squad this summer, but Dortmund are in urgent need of a replacement for Mario Goetze, who will complete a move to rivals Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have also been linked with Chelsea youngster Kevin De Bruyne to fill that role, but it is thought that the Belgian will join Bayer Leverkusen as part of the deal to bring Andre Schurrle to Stamford Bridge.

Eriksen is a midfield playmaker with a highly impressive record of 13 goals and 18 assists this season, and would slot in well at either of these clubs and their attacking style of play.

However, the lure of Champions League football at Dortmund will now see them as favourites over Liverpool to sign him in the upcoming transfer window.
