Top Premier League clubs are circling young Danish talent Christian Eriksen after he informed Ajax he does not wish to renew his contract.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham and Manchester City, among other European clubs, have been linked with the midfielder future, whose contract expires in 2014.

Ajax technical director Marc Overmars revealed the playmaker’s decision to sporten.dk.

“Christian has informed us that he doesn’t want to sign a new contract right now,” the former Dutch player said.

Overmars admits the club want to keep Eriksen “for at least two more years”, although he is aware the Danish rising star is ready to step up.

“He’s a player even the biggest clubs in the world could do with having in their squad,” Overmars added.

Eriksen is a 20-year-old skilful attacking midfielder with an extraordinary passing capacity. In his fourth season at the Eredivisie he’s accumulated 6 goals and 6 assists in 21 league games, to make a total of 9 goals and 13 assists in all competitions.

Liverpool have been reportedly linked as the strongest candidate to acquire the player, however, Eriksen is open to a move to other leagues including the Spanish, Italian and German top flights, with Overmars revealing that “he and his agent want to see what opportunities present themselves this summer” before making a decision.
