BORUSSIA Dortmund have denied having an interest in Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen, reports The Express.
The Danish midfielder has been heavily linked with Liverpool as well as the Bundelsiga giants, but Dortmund insist they are not interested in Eriksen.
Eriksen had been tipped to join the Champions League finalists to fill the role left by the departing Mario Gotze, who is moving to Bayern Munich. But Dortmund Sporting Director Michael Zorc spoke out about Eriksen, stating his surprise at the rumours:
“I have read [the Eriksen rumours] with amazement,” Zorc told Dortmund paper Ruhr Nachrichten.
Eriksen would cost the Reds £15million – the same price they received for selling Andy Carroll to West Ham earlier this week. The midfielder is only 21-years-old, and has been tipped as potentially being a long-term replacement for Steven Gerrard, who turned 33 this year.
The Dane scored 10 goals for Ajax this season in the Eredivisie, as he won his third consecutive league title with the Amsterdam club, as well as scoring in Denmark’s recent 2-1 victory over Georgia.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be carefully monitoring Eriksen’s situation with Dortmund, with rumours suggesting Tottenham are also interested in signing the youngster, who scored against Manchester City in this season’s Champions League.
