Christian Eriksen: Linked with a move away from Ajax in the summer

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for the 21-year-old and fresh speculation has suggested that Borussia Dortmund have made contact to enquire about his availability.

De Boer is realistic about the chances of Eriksen staying in Amsterdam as he knows there is bound to be a lot of attention when the transfer window reopens.

"If clubs do not show up, then they don't have any intelligence," De Boer told reporters.

De Boer admitted that Eriksen would be a perfect fit for the Bundesliga but did not confirm that he had been approached by Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp.

He said: "If I was called than I wouldn't tell it to you. But Chris would suit well in Germany."

Ajax director of football Marc Overmars added in De Telegraaf: "Informally a number of clubs have contacted us."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
