What about Christian Erikson?
Just read an article about this Ajax player and it got me thinking. I can't believe we aren't in talks already. I hope we are!!!
According to Sporten, who compiled a list of Danish player's earnings, he earns 12.5k a week. We could quadruple it and not break our salary cap. Please Mr Levy sanction the money and get the deal done before the transfer window opens this summer.
His fee would probably be between £8 - 12 mill as he's coming into his last year of contract. He can play in centre or attacking midfield or behind the striker, thus he has the versatility AVB likes which along with his age, ability and his vision he is somebody that we really need.
He's also still learning his game and I'm sure would love to work with AVB. His former clubmate Vertonghen can help persuade him that we are going in the right direction, so come on Christian be a sensible chap and join the project at WHL, that's if Levy will cough up the money and not try and save every pound he can.
If he doesn't go in early I fear Eriksen will go elsewhere, very much to our detriment. What say you guys and gals?..
