Christian Eriksen dropped a bombshell this week when he told Ekstra Bladet, reported by the BBC, that he is considering his future, and now his agent has hinted that a move elsewhere is on the cards.
“Last season there were three clubs, two English and one foreign, interested in paying a huge amount to Spurs,” Martin Schoots told Standard Sport after the Champions League final defeat in Madrid.
“For the club it was then a no-go area and for Christian not a must-have. I have the impression we are in a new situation now.”
The Mirror reported yesterday that with Eden Hazard reportedly set to move to Real Madrid for a huge £130million (Telegraph), Spurs believe Eriksen is worth the same amount.
The Champions League runners-up will apparently look to earn well above £130 million if Eriksen departs this summer and Liverpool would be wise to avoid even considering a move for the Dane if that is the case.
With it being reported in France by Foot Radio that Nabil Fekir is free to leave this summer for just £13.2million, it’s clear that there is at least one more cost-effective option out there.
Eriksen snubbed Liverpool in 2013 when he made the switch from Ajax to North London and that needs to be the closest he ever came to moving to Anfield.
The only player that the Reds should consider breaking the £100m mark for in the current market is Kylian Mbappe and there is very little chance of him switch Paris for Merseyside as things stand.
Klopp can do without breaking the bank to sign Eriksen especially when the market is saturated with younger attacking talent.
