Christian Eriksen has spoken highly of both the Bundesliga and the Premier League as Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool battle to sign the Ajax star.

The Denmark international has been heavily linked with a move to the Champions League runners-up in recent weeks, with Jürgen Klopp looking to sign a replacement for Mario Götze, who is set to join Bayern Munich.

Liverpool have also been regularly linked with the 21-year-old this season after the midfielder scored 13 goals and made 18 assists in Ajax’s title-winning season.

And Eriksen insists he has no preference between England and Germany.

“They are two very different leagues but they are also very alike,” Eriksen told Sporten.dk.

“The German league is on its way up where the English league is now. So I won’t prefer one before the other. And it also rains equally much in Germany as it does in England.

“The most important thing is to do what I feel is right. My next club has to express that they really want me.

“I have to feel that it is the right place and then their style of play has to fit me. I can’t play in a club that prefers to play with long balls.”

Eriksen, whose Ajax contract is set to expire in 2014, also spoke of his admiration for Dortmund manager Klopp.

“Jürgen Klopp seems like a really good coach and a great person. It can be the difference for me to get a charismatic coach with a tendency to use younger players,” he added.

“It is the coach who chooses the team so it is important for me to play for a coach who I can trust and who you can build a good relationship with.”
