Long term Liverpool target Christian Eriksen has made it abundantly clear he would be happy to join Liverpool this summer.

The Ajax starlet has long been linked with a move to Anfield but recent reports suggested that a move to join Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund was more likely, however comments made during an interview with a Danish publication suggests the 21 year old is very much interested in a possible summer move to Merseyside.

“I have read the stories and Liverpool is definitely an option,” said Eriksen to Sporten.

“It is also one of the clubs that is held in higher prestige than Amsterdam, as it’s a different league and of a different calibre. It sounds very exciting, but we will have to look at if there is actually something in it.

“I don’t know if there is anything concrete in the rumours, though I have talked to Daniel [Agger] about them.”

Eriksen has helped his Amsterdam side to a third successive Eredivisie title, finishing the season with a massive 13 assists and ten goals to his name in domestic league action alone.

The Danish international is expected to leave Ajax this summer and Brendan Rodgers will hope to make the talented playmaker what would be the club’s third signing of the summer with deals already in place to sign Kolo Toure and Iago Aspas.

Rodgers may see Eriksen as a potential long term replacement for skipper Steven Gerrard though the England veteran’s form in 2012/13 would perhaps suggest that the one club man still has a great deal to offer Liverpool for the next few seasons.
