Paul Merson believes Denmark international Christian Eriksen is the player Manchester United have been calling out for.

According to Paul Merson, he is surprised that “every club in the country” were not in for Christian Eriksen this summer.

Eriksen has reportedly agreed to join Manchester United on a three year contract.

“Christian Eriksen is the player Man Utd have been calling out for. He’s a quality player, top drawer. He sprays the ball round the pitch, makes things happen,” Merson told Sky Sports News.

He continued: “That’s what they need. A lot of teams come to Old Trafford and there is no fear factor anymore, so the game will open up and he can break people down.

“I’m a massive Eriksen fan, I’m surprised every club in the country wasn’t after him. I mean that would be a massive coup for Man Utd.”
