Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen has admitted that he doesn't feel that his game is suited to the Premier League.
The 18-year-old prodigy received rave reviews from the media following his performance against England on Wednesday, with a whole host of clubs now alerted to his abilities.
Currently at Ajax, Eriksen has been linked with teams such as Liverpool and Arsenal in recent times, as well as some of the biggest sides on the continent.
However, Eriksen felt that his tricky style would not be the most effective in the English top-flight and that Italy or Spain may be a better option.
"At every game at Ajax there are scouts of foreign clubs in the stadium. But the Premier League is for me not the most logical league to play in," he told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.
"I don't know if I am physically capable for that kind of football.
"The Serie A and La Liga could possibly fit better. But right now that is not an issue."
Martin Schoots, Eriksen's agent added: "We don't expect Christian will leave Ajax this summer.
"There is not a scenario where he will leave to a bigger club after just two seasons.
"The player has very deliberately chosen Ajax in a period he could move to much bigger clubs in Europe."
