Ajax coach Frank de Boer has revealed he's preparing to lose midfielder Christian Eriksen.

De Boer revealed earlier this month he could see the Dane succeeding at Liverpool.

And yesterday he said: "It is not possible for us to replace Eriksen by buying a player of similar quality.

"So it is better for us to look to replace him from within and I am thinking about people like Lasse Schone, Davy Klaassen, Thulani Serero and [Riechedly] Bazoer."
