Liverpool target Eriksen wants Dortmund move

Christian Eriksen, a long-standing target for Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, is understood to prefer a move to Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund if he is to leave Ajax this summer, ESPN has reported.

Ajax denied in April that they had reached an agreement for the sale of Eriksen to Liverpool, while the player himself has revealed to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf that there has been contact between his current club and Dortmund. ESPN believe Eriksen would be signed by Dortmund Coach Jurgen Klopp as a replacement for Mario Gotze, who is to join Bayern Munich – Dortmund’s Champions League final opponents.

I know there has been contact between the two clubs, and both Ajax and Dortmund have already talked to my agent,” Eriksen said. “I will consider all the clubs and quietly make a decision. I want clarity when preparing for the new season, that’s the best thing – for everyone.

Eriksen, who has a year remaining on his Ajax contract, added: “Dortmund are a club where I would like to play. I think I would be a good fit there with the football there. Dortmund play nice, attacking football

The Bundesliga has never really been my preferred choice and a few years ago I would not even have considered it, but now I do. The competition is getting stronger and it is no coincidence the two Champions League finalists are German clubs.
