Liverpool’s hopes of signing Christian Eriksen have been dealt a blow after the Ajax star revealed he would like to join Borussia Dortmund.

The Denmark international has been one of the standout performers for the Dutch champions this season, scoring 10 goals in 33 appearances.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Eriksen, who has just one year remaining on his current contract with the Eredivisie champions.

But the Ajax playmaker admitted he is attracted by the proposition of joining the Champions League finalists, revealing Dortmund have been in contact with his employers.

“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.”
