In a blow to the Premier League duo, Martin Schoots confirmed that Eriksen would only consider a move to a Champions League club.
"There has been contact with a club from Germany and one from Italy," Schoots told Tuttomercatoweb.
"He will only leave Ajax to join a team that are automatically qualified for the Champions League and fighting for the title every season.
"One thing is for certain, he won't leave on a free transfer."
