ERIKSEN CLOSING IN ON INTER EXIT
Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen could leave the Italian Serie A giants after one year. This is according to several media reports emanating from the Italian football scene.
Danish international Eriksen left North London club Tottenham Hotspur to join the Nerazzuri in January 2020. Inter Milan paid €20m to sign the ex-Ajax Amsterdam playmaker. He has not the expected heights since joining Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.
Christian Eriksen didn't feature in any of the last two Inter Milan games despite being fit and this has heightened rumours of a move away from the club. According to renowned Italian football transfer news expert Fabrizio Romano, there's huge possibility that the player will leave Inter Milan when the transfer market opens again in the coming weeks.
The 28-year-old missed out on the Champions League clash with Real Madrid which ended in a 3-2 away victory for the Spaniards a week ago. He was also missing for the league game with hosts Atalanta at the weekend as the two Champions League teams settled for a 1-1 draw.
Fabrizio Romano further revealed via Calciomercatothat Inter Milan rejected some offers for Christian Eriksen in the summer. The Italians turned down loan offers from two German Bundesliga sides, Hertha Berlin and Borussia Dortmund.
Inter Milan were not ready to lose his services for free though a swap deal could be a very good option ahead of January transfer window.
Christian Eriksen became a household name at Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur whom he signed for from Ajax Amsterdam seven years ago (2013). He was part of the transfer splurge made by Spurs when they received the world-record fee for Welsh international Gareth Bale.
Eriksen had six months left on his Spurs contract before the club decided to sell him in January to avoid losing his services for free.
