Christian Eriksen
Christian Eriksen is believed to be considering interest from Liverpool and Roma.

Liverpool have taken the lead in the race to sign Christian Eriksen with reports suggesting that their only real competition comes from Italian side Roma.

Eriksen is currently making a decision over where his future lies as he enters into the final 12 months of his current deal with Ajax.

Tottenham are also believed to be pursuing the player, who is said to be hoping to make a move to a club where he will continue to get maximum game time.

But Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet claims that Liverpool are the leading English club for Eriksen's signature, with Roma also in the mix for the 21 year old.

A transfer appeared to be done and dusted for Eriksen to join Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund after the Ajax star admitted he would love to move to the club that came runners-up in the Champions League last season.

But Dortmund instead decided to purchase Henrikh Mkhitaryan with a large chunk of the money they received from Mario Gotze's sale, and as a result the stylish midfielder must reassess his next destination as a host of clubs place offers on the table.

While Liverpool lost out to Dortmund in their pursuit of Mkhitaryan, capturing Eriksen would certainly be a huge boost for the side who next season can't offer any European football to incoming players.

Rodgers admitted today that he would continue looking for big-name players to sign after sealing four deals already in this transfer window.

"Our recruitment team are doing a great job behind the scenes in compiling lists of players that we can afford and might be available for us," he told reporters.

The club look to have missed out on another player who was a point of interest at Ajax, with Tony Alderweireld looking closer to a Norwich move after De Telegraaf claimed a fee has been accepted for the skipper.

Now Nowrich just need to agree personal terms with Alderweireld to complete the deal, with the price believed to be in the vicinity of €8m.
