Liverpool FC step up interest in Ajax playmaker Christian Eriksen - report

Liverpool are reportedly preparing to make a move for Christian Eriksen after stepping up their interest in the Ajax playmaker.

Eriksen, who is out of contract in June 2014, has been linked with a number of top clubs from across Europe over the past few months, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham also believed to be keen.

Spurs recently enquired about Eriksen, who recently admitted he is interested in joining a club playing in a bigger league and has been on Brendan Rodgers' radar for some time.

And according to the Daily Mirror, the Reds boss has sent scouts to watch the Denmark international play for his country against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria over the past week and is now planning to firm up his interest.

Ajax are keen for the highly-rated 21-year-old to remain at the Amsterdam Arena, but contract talks recently broke down, and director of football Marc Overmars last month confirmed that a move could happen when the transfer window reopens at the end of the season.

Overmars told sporten.dk: "Christian has informed us that he doesn’t want to sign a new contract right now. I think he and his agent want to see what opportunities present themselves this summer."

He added: "We want him to stay here for at least two more years, but the day he leaves us, he will be ready to play for the very best.

"He’s a player even the biggest clubs in the world could do with having in their squad."

Eriksen's agent has refused to rule out a move away from the club this summer, with Martin Schoots recently admitting his client could be ready to consider his options.
