Liverpool poised to add Danish prodigy to robust midfield

Reports are suggesting that rumours may prove true in the next transfer window when Ajax midfielder and Danish starlet, Christian Eriksen, seals a January move to the club.

Transfer speculation has been in full flow regarding the future of the Eredivisie sensation and Liverpool are one club to have popped up continuously.

The 19 year-old was thought to have favoured a move to one of Europe’s warmer climates such as La Liga or Serie A, but the football community can sometimes be a fickle kind when it comes to preference.

It’s thought that the Reds will need to offload some of their midfield before they can bring another however, after the summer purchases of Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson were brought in to an already clogged up part of the side.

Jonjo Shelvey, Joe Cole and Alberto Aquilani are all middle men that are currently on loan at other clubs but will need to be sold, along with bench players like Maxi Rodriguez and Jay Spearing if the Anfield outfit are to break the bank on another midfield star.

The attacking midfielder is thought to be valued at around £20m by Ajax, and already has 18 senior caps to his name representing his native Denmark, including the title of youngest player at the 2010 World Cup tournament.
