Liverpool have struggled in the Barclays Premier League this season, with the Merseyside outfit only managing one solitary win in their first seven games and manager Brendan Rodgers is believed to be keen to bolster his side's misfiring attack during the January transfer window.

Eriksen has long been tracked by a host of top clubs including the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Juventus but the Danish international has declared that he is content with staying with the Dutch champions.

Speaking to Tipsbladet, Eriksen said: "It's very nice that one of the big clubs is looking at me. 

"It's very special, but I haven't been thinking about moving clubs at all." 

The 20-year-old also hinted that the pressure to succeed at a club which had a history of producing young talents was a tad overwhelming but was confident that he would eventually make a name for himself.

"You have some big shoes to fill," Eriksen added.

"People judge you - 'He's not like Wesley Sneijder was' or 'He's not doing the things Rafael van der Vaart was'.

"No, I'm not - I'm Christian Eriksen, and that is who I will always be."

Eriksen is set to feature for Denmark in their FIFA World Cup Qualifying match against Bulgaria on Friday.
