Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen has admitted that he would relish the chance to play in the Premier League.
The 20-year-old’s club have always maintained that he is not for sale at any price, but the player has confessed that he is looking to move on:
“I think that my future lies in England, Italy or Spain.” He is quoted by Gazzetta Dello Sport.
“These are the competitions that I like.”
He did however hint that a January move is doubtful:
“I do not know what I will do in a few months’ time yet, but I want to leave my mark before moving on.”
It’s unlikely that he will leave for a minimal fee, with his employers believed to be to demanding in excess of £20m for his services.
Eriksen has become a key part of the Ajax set-up since joining the club as a youth player from Odense.
He has made over 90 appearances for the Amserdam ArenA-based club, winning two league titles.
His performances have also made him a major component in the Danish national team, for whom he has won 30 caps.
