Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen’s future has been the subject of plenty of speculation this summer after the Dane came out and revealed his intention to seek a new challenge ahead of the new campaign (Ekstra Bladet).

The 27-year-old, who has spent six seasons in North London after moving from Ajax in the summer of 2013, is now into the final year of his contract with the club.

The playmaker has been linked heavily with a move to Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane continues to rebuild his squad after a disappointing season (AS).

Former Liverpool striker Dean Saunders has now urged Jurgen Klopp’s side to sign Eriksen this summer.

The former Welsh international said that the midfielder would fit in perfectly at Anfield and will further improve the side.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Saunders said: “They (Liverpool) could spend the budget maybe, I think Christian Eriksen could slot into Liverpool’s team; somebody like Eriksen.

“That type of player who will make their midfield a bit more productive.”

Eriksen is currently with the rest of the Spurs squad in Singapore as a part of the club’s pre-season tour of Asia.

Real Madrid’s local rivals Atletico Madrid are also said to be monitoring the former Ajax man (Marca).

The fact that Eriksen is training with the rest of the first team bodes well for his prospects of staying at the club as the likes of Danny Rose, Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, who have been made available for sale, have been left back in London.

Even if the Dane is to leave, it is extremely unlikely that Levy will consider selling him to another English club.
