Christian Eriksen: Set to leave Ajax and could join Dortmund

The 21-year-old Denmark international has caught the eye of clubs across Europe with his performances this season, with Liverpool and Dortmund among those courting the player.

With just a year remaining on his contract, Ajax are set to cash in on Eriksen this summer and he admits he is tempted by a move to Germany.

"Dortmund are a club where I would like to play," he told De Telegraaf. "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.

"I know there has been contact between the two clubs, and both Ajax and Dortmund have already talked to my agent.

"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 is being lined up by Dortmund as a replacement for Mario Gotze, who will join Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
