Ajax youngster and Liverpool target Christian Eriksen has hinted fairly strongly that he would favour a move to Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to Sky Sports.

The Danish attacker has been catching the eye for some years now after making a name for himself with Dutch giants Ajax, and is a top target for both Liverpool and Dortmund in the upcoming transfer window.

Beaten Champions League finalists Dortmund are on the lookout for a replacement for star player Mario Goetze, who has already been confirmed as joining Bayern Munich next season. Chelsea youngster Kevin De Bruyne has also been linked as a candidate for Dortmund’s attacking midfield role.

Liverpool are also hoping for a strong transfer window, as they look to bring in players that can help them break into the top four of the Premier League next season, though they now seem unlikely to land Eriksen.

Speaking about his options, the 21-year-old said: “Jurgen Klopp seems like a really good coach and a great person. It can be the difference for me to get a charismatic coach with a tendency to use younger players.

“It is the coach who chooses the team so it is important for me to play for a coach who I can trust and who you can build a good relationship with.”

Eriksen is in the final year of his contract with Ajax and could be available for a knock-down price of just £15million this summer.
