Gary Neville has urged Liverpool to sign Tottenham transfer target, Christian Eriksen, and added that some of his passing is ‘out of this world’, as he told the Overlap.

Eriksen’s short-term contract at Brentford is due to expire in June and Neville thinks one of the ‘big-six’ will sign him, as he discussed the likes of Liverpool, Spurs, Manchester City and Arsenal adding him to their ranks.

Liverpool probably need midfield options in the summer, but would they pluck for someone like Eriksen?


At the end of the day, he would be a free transfer, he has won a title before and he has played in Europe before.

One thing is for sure, the midfield pass master wouldn’t be a bad shout for anyone, as Neville thinks he could play a ‘Shaqiri-like role’ at Anfield.

“I think Eriksen will get plucked by a big club,” said Neville. “He might show loyalty (to Brentford) over what they have done for him.

“If you were any top-six club, that were looking at a midfield three, and you wanted a player to go in there and play 30 games for you in a squad-type (role). He could play for Man City, Liverpool and for any club in the top-six. I am not saying starting every week. What Shaqiri was doing for Liverpool.

“If Liverpool are looking for a midfielder to come on for Thiago, say who gets injured a little bit, why would you not look at Eriksen? Look at him for two seasons to do a job for you.

“He’s a brilliant pro. Great player. His quality on the ball is unbelievable – some of Eriksen’s passing in that game (v Man United) was out of this world.

On going back to Spurs: “The problem with Spurs if he is going to play that system, with the two in midfield, it is an option – if Arsenal are going to play with a three – he could play for anyone in the top-six.”

In 2020, Antonio Conte, then the manager of Inter Milan, signed Eriksen from Spurs where they went on to win the Seri A title.

Of course, the unfortunate circumstances of Euro 2020 occurred for the Denmark international, which now means he can no longer compete in Italy.

But, Eriksen is now back in English football, getting back to his past and Conte is rumoured to want him back at the club.

So, if the ball-playing midfielder does move, then it will probably be a return to where he first made a name for himself in English football.
