De Boer warns Eriksen against Liverpool switch

The Ajax coach feels that the Reds’ playing style under Brendan Rodgers would not suit the young Denmark international but admits the decision is ultimately up to the player

Ajax coach Frank de Boer has warned Christian Eriksen against a move to Liverpool.

The Denmark international has been linked with a switch to Anfield, as well as other clubs such as Roma and Borussia Dortmund, in recent months. 

However, since the Bundesliga side signed attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan last week, Eriksen’s most likely destination looks set to be Liverpool – a move De Boer feels would be unwise.

“If they play as they do now, I would not go”, the former Netherlands international told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad.

“The playing style would not suit his own but, ultimately, it is for Chris himself to decide.”

Eriksen, 21, has just one year remaining on his current contract at the Amsterdam ArenA and looks set to leave before the end of the transfer window.

Should he move to Anfield, he would join an impressive array of attacking talent, with Brendan Rodgers having added signings such as Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto to his squad in the close-season.

Rodgers also has the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez to call on as he attempts to improve his side’s seventh-place finish in the Premier League last season.
