Liverpool offer Hansen trial

Christian Eriksen has turned down the offer of a new deal at

Ajax and claims he would consider a switch to England.

The Denmark international has long been billed as a Premier

League star of the future, with his talents having been spotted

early by top sides across Europe.

Eriksen has shrugged off endless rounds of speculation regarding

his future to remain loyal to Ajax, but is now ready to swing open

the transfer door.

He remains under contract in Holland until 2014, but Ajax will

look to cash in on his services rather than risk losing him for

nothing.

A move to Spain was reported to be Eriksen’s preference, but the

highly-rated 20-year-old insists he is keeping all options

open.

“I will make a decision concerning my future later,” said

Eriksen.

“It is not true that I am only considering a move to Spain. I

will review all options from Italy, England and Spain.

“But before I leave Ajax, I want to continue to win and that is

my focus.”

The Reds have been tracking the 18-year-old for some time, with

contact having been made in the past.

Hansen is due to spend a week working with Liverpool’s reserve

side, as he looks to catch the eye of the Reds’ coaching staff.

He is currently back-up to the more experienced Martin Hansen at

Viborg, but is considered to be a hot prospect for the future.

“I look forward to trying to impress,” Hansen told Viborg’s

official website.

“It will be a great experience.”
