The 21-year old has attracted interest from a number of European sides in recent months, having been a stand-out figure at the Amsterdam Arena since his first-team breakthrough in 2010.
Eriksen could be set to depart this summer and he says that the manager of any potential new club is a key factor to where he will go.
Borussia Dortmund are understood to be heading the queue for his services, and he admits coach Jurgen Klopp is a big draw.
"Jurgen Klopp seems like a really good coach and a great person. It can be the difference for me to get a charismatic coach with a tendency to use younger players," he told Sporten.dk.
"It is the coach who chooses the team so it is important for me to play for a coach who I can trust and who you can build a good relationship with."
The Danish international had previously stated his desire to play in La Liga, but he says a move to Spain is no longer his first choice.
"That has changed. I wouldn't mind playing in Spain if there was something interesting there for me but I might try a different league first."
Eriksen has been linked with moves to Premier League and Bundesliga clubs, but he says he now has no preference over the two.
"They are two very different leagues but they are also very alike. The German league is on its way up where the English league is now. So I won't prefer one before the other. And it also rains equally much in Germany as it does in England," said Eriksen, who is said to be high on Liverpool's wanted list.
"The most important thing is to do what I feel is right. My next club has to express that they really want me.
"I have to feel that it is the right place and then their style of play has to fit me. I can't play in a club that prefers to play with long balls."
