Ajax have yet to receive any offers for the services of midfielder Christian Eriksen, according to the player himself.

Eriksen, 21, who has one year left to run on his contract at the Eredivisie club, has been heavily linked with a summer move to Liverpool.

That speculation has increased since Borussia Dortmund, who had also been tipped as a likely destination for the Denmark international, signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Shakhtar Donetsk earlier this month.

Ajax coach Frank de Boer gave his blessing for Eriksen to move to Liverpool over the weekend, should he request such a switch.

However, when asked about where his future lies, the midfielder stated that he is yet to hear of any concrete offers.

"I do not know more about this than you," he told Voetbal International. "If I leave, I have to go to a club that is bigger than Ajax in every way.

"But no clubs like that have shown interest yet. I've read a lot about it, but heard nothing from the club."
