Christian Eriksen now says he wants to make a move to Borussia Dortmund, with the Liverpool playmaker target saying he likes the idea of playing in the Bundesliga next season.
Eriksen has been hot property on the transfer market for some time now, and coming into the final 12 months of his deal at Ajax has forced the club's hand as they look set to lose one of their top young prospects.
Numerous clubs have been linked with Eriksen over the last season; Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted to being an admirer of the 21 year old, while he has also revealed he likes idea of a move to Tottenham.
Liverpool were most recently believed to be close to a deal for Eriksen, with his club forced to deny that they had a formal agreement with the Reds to take the Denmark international.
But it now appears that he could be set for a move to Dortmund as a replacement for the outgoing Mario Gotze, with Eriksen telling NUSport: "That is a beautiful club that I would like to play for.
"I guess I would be okay. They play attacking, beautiful football, just as I like to do. And they compete for trophies."
Not being able to offer Champions League football was always going to be a hinderance in Liverpool's pursuit of Eriksen, and with Dortmund currently competing in the final of the tournament, and holding two Bundesliga titles over the last three seasons, the youngster says he would be interested in a move to Jurgen Klopp's side.
"A few years ago I did not see Germany as an option, but the level has gone up there," he explained.
"It says a lot that two German clubs are in the Champions League final. It may well be that the Bundesliga is now the strongest league."
Eriksen is believed to be worth around €20 million, which would be within Dortmund's budget after the sale of Gotze to Bayern Munich for €37 million.
