Eriksen left Ajax for Spurs in the final week of the summer market.
Speaking to the BT newspaper, Eriksen said: "Dortmund was interested, and they approached me. I guess that they have contacted all the candidates they had, and I was one of the many.
"They were interested, and there was a phone call from them. But it's a long time ago and a lot has happened since."
