Babel Urges Ajax Ace To Make Anfield Switch

Former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel has revealed he has encouraged Denmark star Christian Eriksen to join the Anfield side.

Eriksen has been a long-term target for the Reds but their interest in him has grown in recent weeks after missing out on Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who joined Borussia Dortmund.

Babel, who left Merseyside in 2011, played alongside the playmaker at Ajax last term and says the 21-year-old would jump at the chance to play for Liverpool if the club ramp up their efforts to sign him.

He said: "For the fans who have questions about Eriksen, I've given him enough information about the club during the past season, so he understands.

"In my opinion it's Liverpool who has to make the real effort to get him."
