Arsenal closing in on Ajax starlet Eriksen

Ajax attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen is attracting serious interest from Arsenal.

The Guardian says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has received glowing reports on the player, who made his debut for Denmark as a substitute in the 2-1 friendly defeat by Austria two weeks ago, not least from Dennis Bergkamp, the former Arsenal striker who is a youth coach at Ajax.

Wenger's attention may have been encouraged by Eriksen's contractual situation: he is on a low-paid youth-team deal which expires next year.

Ajax coach Martin Jol said of Eriksen: "I have to be very wrong if this player will not become a good, a very good or a top player."
