Ajax star Christian Eriksen admits the media gaze has only intensified since facing Manchester United in the Europa League. Eriksen drew praise from United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, while he is also a favourite of Chelsea transfers adviser Piet de Visser.

"The clash (with United) meant that there was extra attention on Ajax and my personality, but it's not something I let myself be influenced by," said Eriksen. "There was only positive things written about me and I am obviously happy with that."

On the prospect of moving to England, Eriksen said: "It is traditionally a tough, physical league, but young players like David Silva and Juan Mata has shown the way, so it's not impossible for players with my body type to succeed there."
