Everton are thought to be extremely interested in the Ajax player and could be after a replacement for Mauroane Fellaini, who is likely to leave this summer.
The Merseyside clubs are unlikely to sign Eriksen who yesterday announced his intentions to sign for Dortmund though and declared to De Telegraf: “Dortmund are a club where I would like to play,” he told De Telegraaf. “I think I would be a good fit with the football there. Dortmund play nice, attacking football.
“The Bundesliga has never really been my preferred choice and a few years ago I would not even have considered it, but now I do. The competition is getting stronger and it is no coincidence the two Champions League finalists are German clubs.
“I know there has been contact between the two clubs, and both Ajax and Dortmund have already talked to my agent. I will consider all the clubs and quietly make a decision. I want clarity when preparing for the new season, that’s the best thing – for everyone.”
Eriksen is being lined up by Dortmund as a replacement for Mario Götze,who will join Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
