Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has urged his fellow Denmark international Christian Eriksen to join the Merseyside club.
The 21-year-old has been strongly linked with a move away from the Amsterdam Arena, with Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund touted as potential suitors.
And, having captained the playmaker at international level, Agger believes Eriksen would fit perfectly with Brendan Rodgers’ passing philosophy.
“We want to play attacking football with the ball on the ground and that is exactly what Christian Eriksen is all about. That is the kind of player we need,” he told Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.
“It all depends on which team he plays for. If he plays for a team who want to keep the ball on the ground, then the answer is yes – due to his passing, his runs and his hard work.
“He has to do what he believes is best and no-one else but him should decide his future. You must never listen to anyone else other than yourself.”
Eriksen scored 10 goals and provided 17 assists in 33 Eredivisie appearances in the 2012-13 campaign.
