AC Milan plot move for Liverpool target

Ajax's Christian Eriksen

AC Milan are plotting a move for Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen, a player believed to be a long term target to Liverpool, reports talkSPORT. 

The Danish midfielder is one of the most highly rated young prospects in Europe, and has already turned down a move to Bayern Leverkusen this summer.

The 21-year-old has hinted at being open to a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers reportedly making him his first choice summer signing after losing out on Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Borussia Dortmund.

Therefore the news Milan have shown a genuine interest will be of great concern to the Reds, who will be desperate to not be beaten to two of their top summer targets.

Eriksen has already managed 36 caps for Denmark at the age of just 21, and Liverpool hope the prospect of him linking up with his international captain Daniel Agger may prove appealing.

The potential stumbling block lies in the fact Liverpool are unable to offer European football next season to a player described as one of the stars of the Erividese.

The transfer is due to take a twist, with Milan thought to be prepping a serious offer having scouted the midfielder last season, and Ajax admitting they are likely to lose the player, who has just one year left on his contract.
