For many a professional footballer the transfer window is just another occasion to watch their name linked with every club under the sun.
For Ajax’s Christian Eriksen this is a common problem. For the past few years the Dane has been linked with pretty much every club underneath the sun.
This summer has been no different accept for one small detail; it looks like he might actually be on his way this time.
In previous years he has often been the subject of talk and speculation but never decided the time was right; happy instead to continue being one of the star attractions at the Amsterdam club.
Now, at the age of 21, he feels the time is finally right to depart and embark on a new career.
And the clubs have come running for his services once again.
French club Paris Saint-Germain are said to be keen while Borussia Dortmund are widely believed to be the favourites in the pursuit of his signature. With Mario Gotze on his way to Bayern Munich they see him as the perfect replacement.
In the Premier League however the interest comes largely from Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers sees him as the perfect addition to his current team and at the quoted price of £15 million it might be a fantastic investment for the future.
So what is all the fuss about?
Well if you were after a timely reminder he gave it in Aalborg tonight.
While the likes of Jonjo Shelvey and Jordan Henderson were dragging their feet in Israel the talismanic playmaker was saving the blushes of his national side.
Denmark were moments away from drawing 1-1 with Georgia - a team 76 places below them in FIFA’s World Rankings - when Eriksen stepped up to a free-kick dead central with the goal.
And with minimal fuss he duly stepped up and placed the ball sublimely into the goalkeeper’s top left-hand corner.
Here it is….
Do you think Liverpool should pay £15 million for Eriksen?
