PL superstar who wants to ‘try something new’ would ‘slot into Liverpool’s team,’ says pundit

Former Liverpool forward Dean Saunders reckons the club could do with somebody like Tottenham’s wantaway Dane Christian Eriksen.

The pundit was explaining how the 27-year-old could benefit our midfield and give our central trio a greater creative edge.

“I think Eriksen could slot into Liverpool’s team; somebody like Eriksen,” he told talkSPORT, cited in Goal.

“That type of player who will make their midfield a bit more productive.”

Eriksen has publicly declared he’d like to leave Spurs for a new challenge, following their Champions League Final defeat to Liverpool at the start of June.

“I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new,” the playmaker told Sky Sports in early July. 

“I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened at Tottenham – I will not be negative. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.”

Eriksen is a superb player, but we’d actually suggest he’s already peaked and is now on his downward curve – having been playing senior football at a remarkably young age for Ajax.

He has no pace, and although we appreciate his vision and technical ability, envisage Liverpool’s midfield full of dynamism, dribbling and pressing – which we’re not sure Eriksen can offer anymore.

That, on top of the fact he’d cost an enormous amount of money, makes this a non-starter, for us.

We’d also suggest Eriksen may be happier moving to the continent, having built up an affinity with Spurs and their fans over the past six years.
