Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen has revealed talks have taken place over a possible move to Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

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

"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," he said.

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."

He said his opinion of the Bundesliga has changed in recent years.

"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," he said. "The competition is getting stronger and it is no coincidence the two Champions League finalists are German clubs."

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