Former Liverpool schemer Molby thinks the youngster should continue to learn his trade in Holland before moving on elsewhere – and that he would struggle to make the grade at an “elite” club until he peaks in his mid-20s.
“There is a lot of hype about Christian and there is certainly a lot of potential there as well,” said Molby.
“All the top clubs have been looking at him because he has clearly got all the ingredients to one day become a top, top player. But Eriksen is nowhere near being the finished article. In my opinion, I don’t think he is anywhere near ready to move to one of the elite European clubs.
“If he can continue to improve next season, then even then I would say that he would only be ready for a club that regularly qualifies for the Champions League rather than one of the so-called giants of the game.”
