Liverpool Close In On Young Star After Missing Out On Top Target

Liverpool is ready to move for Ajax’s Christian Eriksen after losing out on top target Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Reds thought they were close to a deal for Mkhitaryan, but last night he agreed a £21.5million move to Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has now earmarked Danish international Eriksen, with a move for the 21-year-old expected next week.

Rodgers will be disappointed to miss out on Shakhtar Donetsk’s playmaker Mkhitaryan, with the Armenian identified as their number one summer priority.
