Tottenham still scouting Christian Eriksen
The 21-year old’s contract with the Dutch Eredivisie champions expires at the end of this season, and it doesn’t look like he will be extending his stay with Ajax.
‘I will only go where my heart wants to go. I am patiently waiting what will happen in the next few weeks. But I have said before I only want to go to a club where I feel I can play at my best and which suits my style.’ – Christian Eriksen.
His asking price is said to be around the £12M mark, but Ajax are keen to cash in on him rather than risk losing the midfielder for nothing next summer, so they could accept a lower bid.
Last season, he scored 10 goals in 33 Eredivisie games, while grabbing 17 assists. He’s already started the 2013/14 campaign in similar fashion, with a goal and assist in his opening two league games for the Dutch side.
Making 33 appearances for the Denmark national team, Eriksen has eyed a move to a big European side for 12 months.
‘Christian is one of the best midfielders and one of the biggest talents in Europe. I think before the transfer window closes we will witness a big transfer.’’ – Eriksen’s agent Soren Lerby.
Tottenham scouts were said to have been watching him in a number of league games this campaign, and manager Andres Villas-Boas has previously revealed his admiration for the youngster.
