Inter CEO confirms Eriksen will leave the club in January

Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed that Christian Eriksen will leave the club in the January transfer window, according to Sky Sports via Fabrizio Romano.

The Denmark international joined Inter from Tottenham Hotspur for £17 million at the start of the year. He was expected to be the creative hub of the Italian side but he has failed to make an impression on manager Antonio Conte and is clearly not in his plans. This season, Eriksen has made 12 appearances in all competitions but started just five times. He is yet to score a goal or provide a single assist. 

It has been widely reported that he would be made available for a transfer next month. Both Marotta and Eriksen have said similar things in the past few months but today’s comments further confirm the fact that he will exit the club in January. He has been linked with Arsenal, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund. 

The 28-year-old is not expected to cost more than £20 million but it is possible that Inter will choose to send him out on loan with an option to make the move permanent in the summer. Eriksen spent six and a half years at Tottenham prior to his move to Italy and was hugely successful during his time in North London. He scored 69 goals and provided 89 assists in 305 appearances for Spurs. 

Arsenal are in need of a creative midfielder and Eriksen would be an astute signing. He is proven in the Premier League and still in the peak of his powers even if the last year has not gone as expected. It is not clear if the player would be willing to move to his former club’s fiercest rivals but he is looking for regular game time and the Gunners would definitely be able to provide him with that.
