Liverpool are locked in a battle with AC Milan to sign Ajax teenage sensation Christian Eriksen.
Eriksen, 19, is rated one of the best young midfielders in Europe and has been earning rave reviews in Holland.
Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for Eriksen but the move never materialised during the summer.
But Kenny Dalglish will have to act fast if he wants to get his man as reports in Italy are now suggesting that AC Milan have entered the race to clinch his signature.
Milan have also been impressed with his performances and want to bring him to the San Siro.
Ajax refused to sell their star player during the summer but the situation could change in 2012 and the club are preparing themselves for a bidding war when the transfer window re-opens in January.
