Former Tottenham Hotspur star Jermaine Jenas thinks Liverpool could transfer for Christian Eriksen in the summer.
The Dane is a free agent at the end of the campaign but hasn’t been at his best for Spurs. The 27-year-old only has one Premier League goal and one assist to his name this season.
Eriksen netted his first Champions League goal of the season in the 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade. However, it has been a disappointing campaign from Tottenham, and they struggled a bit in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Spurs a couple of weeks ago. Eriksen had a weak outing then, but Jenas told the Mirror that some big clubs would be interested in the Dane’s services:
“If I was Eriksen and the bid didn’t come in that I wanted to come in, I would sit tight, I wouldn’t rush.
“Not only can I move for free in the summer, but that brings in Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, all the big hitters, Man Utd, even Liverpool.
“On top of that you have the huge windfall of wages.”
Jenas added that Tottenham would not have minded had Eriksen left earlier, but says they might not have received the right bid for the 27-year-old.
The Reds have signed players from other Premier League clubs during Jurgen Klopp’s tenure and it will be interesting to see if we move for Eriksen at the end of the campaign.
