Danish international Eriksen, 21, has one year remaining on his contract with the Eredivisie leaders and has been a long-term target for a number of top European sides including Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal who Ajax technical director Marc Overmars confirmed had been scouting the player regularly.

Eriksen has always played down a move but despite being offered a new deal in Amsterdam he is leaving any option to extend his current deal until the summer and he has dropped a hint that he may be considering a move.

"I read that my asking price was €20m," Eriksen told Het Parool. "That is a lot, yes, but I will leave that for the clubs [to decide]."
