TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Ponder £30m Dutch Wonderkid
Manchester City and Chelsea are set to lock horns over the signing of Ajax winger Christian Eriksen.
The Mail reports that Chelsea have fired an opening offer thought to be around £22million, testing Ajax’s resolve to hang on to the 19-year-old midfielder, but City are set to trump that with an astonishing £30million bid.
Scouts across Europe’s elite have flocked to watch the gifted youngster, including the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Bayern Munich, but it’s the Premiership duo that are thought to be leading the race for his signature.
Eriksen was voted young player of the year last season, which has boasted players such as Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben. The talented midfielder has already scored five goals this season as Ajax brace themselves for further offers from Europe’s’ leading clubs and it’s expected Eriksen will move on next summer.
