Danish teenager Christian Eriksen is still content with life in Amsterdam and does not expect to leave Ajax for another two or three years, liverpoolfc.tv reports.
The 19 year old midfielder is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in European football and has been the target of Liverpool’s affections for most of the year. Eriksen has said he would prefer a move to Spain, but at first, he is keen on continuing to serve his education in Holland.
Eriksen said: ‘With my style of play, there is no doubt that Spain would be ideal for me. But I’m still not transferring. My priority is to play football and at Ajax, I play in the championship and I will play in the Champions League. It may take two or three years before I move to Spain. I’m in no hurry to go, until I’m ready to go’.
Reds manager Kenny Dalglish is keen on signing Eriksen, but will face stiff competition from La Liga sides judging on the Ajax midfielder’s recent words.

Suarez feeling fit.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez insisted that he feels ready to play every game, despite barely having a break all summer, Sky Sports reports.
The Uruguayan made a big impact at Anfield during the second half of last season and then had to jet off to Colombia to participate in Uruguay’s victory in the Copa America. Suarez only had a week’s rest all summer before returning to Liverpool for the start of the season, but has shown no signs of fatigue so far this season.
The 24 year old expects to be fine all season long and should start up front against Stoke on Saturday, despite making a 3,300 mile round trip this week to face Ukraine for his country.
Suarez said: ‘I want to play in all the games I can for Liverpool. Despite only having that week before playing again, I’m only 24 so I felt good. I was glad to get back training at Melwood, as I had been missing that whole atmosphere around the training ground and I wanted to get back to playing at Anfield. So it was really special for me to get back’.
NextGen Series victory over Molde.
Liverpool bounced back from a crushing 3-0 loss to Sporting Lisbon by beating Molde 4-0 in their second game of the NextGen Series, The Liverpool Echo reports.
The young Reds played fantastically in Molde and Rodolfo Borrell’s side will take great heart in their fantastic performance. Two goals from Toni Silva, a Conor Coady penalty and a goal from young forward Raheem Sterling sealed the win for Liverpool in Norway.
Borrell was happy with his side’s performance and believes that they can now push on to beat Wolfsburg at Anfield in their next fixture. The Liverpool academy manager said: ‘It is a happy night for us. We scored four goals and created a lot of chances. We were aware that Molde were a good side, especially after they beat Wolfsburg 3-2 in their first game, and I thought we played quite well overall.’
‘It was an important victory for us, especially after the defeat by Sporting Lisbon which was quite hard to take, so there is still a lot of football to be played in this tournament. We could have scored more goals, but the Molde goalkeeper made some great saves’, Borrell added.
