Certainly nothing is finalized, but the rumors are beginning to gain steam over a possible Christian Eriksen summer move to Liverpool.
When transfer gossip moves beyond the less-than-reputable pages of such publications as the Mirror, the Daily Express or the Mail, then your ears should prick up a bit.
Take Sky Sports, for example. Today, it ran a story in which Ajax had to move to quash reports that personal terms had already been agreed upon.
ESPN ran a story along the same lines.
When a club feels the need to come out to legitimate press outlets to deny a claim, that often means there is a grain of truth to initial reports. And with Eriksen reportedly on his way out this summer, regardless of destination, this one makes sense.
The Dane fits perfectly into the No. 10 role that Brendan Rodgers prizes. He has the talent to fill the creator position that Jordan Henderson has awkwardly, albeit admirably, occupied this campaign.
With that in mind, we jump the gun a bit and take a look at a possible Reds first team going into 2013/14.
