Premier League quartet on red alert for Ajax star

Christian Eriksen (Ajax)Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool could up their interest in Ajax’s Christian Eriksen, after the midfielder admitted that he may leave Amsterdam this summer.

The quartet have been interested in the Danish playmaker, who is thought of as one of the Eredivisie’s top talents, for some time.

Speculation regarding his future has increased in recent months, with the 21-year-old’s contract set to expire at the end of next season.

Although his club have maintained that they are keen to keep hold of their star man, Eriksen says that there is a 50/50 chance that he could leave Holland at the end of the season:

“I cannot say what will happen next summer,” he is quoted by talkSPORT via TuttoMercatoWeb.

“I have started to prepare for the season with Ajax but I do not know if I will continue with them. I have 50 per cent chance to stay where I am.”

Eriksen has spurned Ajax’s initial offers of a new deal, and is thought to be weighing up his options ahead of the next transfer window.

Manchester United and Arsenal could be considered front-runners for his signature, but Liverpool and Tottenham are also in the race, and may be able to offer him a greater chance of regular first-team football.

However, the English sides will face competition from Barcelona, who are said to be watching the youngster.
