Liverpool “appear to be leading the race” for Ajax attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen, according to ESPN.

According to Ajax Fanzone, Liverpool have already held talks with Amsterdam side.

Eriksen has been linked with Liverpool on numerous occasions and is known to have been scouted extensively by The Reds. Some see him as being a long-term replacement for Steven Gerrard in midfield.
