The agent of highly-rated Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen, recently linked with Arsenal and Liverpool, has warned Europe's top club that his client will remain in Holland for at least another season.
Eriksen, 20, has been widely hailed as the 'new Michael Laudrup' by sections of the Danish press but the midfielder is eager to remain under the tutelage of Ajax coach Frank de Boer for at least another season.
And Martin Schoot, the player's agent, has warned Arsenal and Liverpool against trying to sign Eriksen in the summer.
"The timing is not right as Christian needs to continue to grow in his game at Ajax," Schoot is quoted in Goal.com.
The talented playmaker, who has scored seven goals in 20 league appearances for Ajax this term, is under contract with the Eredivisie club until 2014 but has also been linked with a move to AC Milan.
And Schoot added: "Milan is a very interesting club and a big step forward, but I do not know if he is ready for such an important and great club yet."
Eriksen joined Ajax from Danish side OB for £800,000 in 2008 and made his first-team debut under then-Ajax manager Martin Jol two years later. The midfielder was impressive during the season run-in, leading Jol to compare him to Ajax youth products Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van der Vaart.
