Christian Eriksen has given Liverpool’s hopes of landing the Ajax star a boost by playing down reports linking him with a move to Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

The Denmark international has been linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs after impressing for both his club and country over the past 12 months.

Dortmund were believed to be on the verge of signing the playmaker, who has scored 13 Eredivisie goals this term, but Eriksen isn’t aware of any potential deal with the Champions League runners-up.

“I still haven’t heard anything,” Eriksen told Bold.dk. “I’ve just seen what is in the papers.

“Of course it is pointless if there isn’t any truth to the rumours. But I’ve read a lot, and so far nothing is completely true.

“I’ve said it before that Dortmund is an option that would be good for me, but it is not the only option.”

Eriksen, who has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in recent months, has scored 29 top-flight goals over the past three seasons to help Ajax win three successive Eredivisie titles.
