Christian Eriksen, having only joined Inter Milan from Tottenham a few months ago is now confirmed to be leaving the Italian giants in January. The Danish midfielder became unsettled at Tottenham after the departure of Mauricio Pochettino and the arrival of José Mourinho and was allowed to leave in January 2020 based on his request.
Since joining Inter, he has not enjoyed enough game time under his new boss Antonio Conte. The situation has grown worse over the past couple of months and it raised several questions about whether he would be continuing his stay at the club or leave in search of better opportunities.
Inter Milan Chief Executive Officer Beppe Marotta has confirmed that the midfielder will leave the club next month. When asked about the situation, Marotta said that he can confirm that Eriksen is on the transfer list and that he will leave in January. The CEO added that the former Tottenham midfielder is considered surplus to requirements at the Nerazzurri and as a result, he will be allowed to go.
Earlier this year, Eriksen ready admitted that he was not settled at the club and that the situation was different from what he dreamed of. He said he desires to play more games, but the coach’s ideologies became different from what he was told before he joined.
Eriksen further said that even though the coach has not called upon him to play more games as he would want, he still respects the decision and holds nothing against Conte.
Arsenal have been touted as his most likely destination once he leaves in January, but the player himself has not given any hint as regards his next destination. It however remains to be seen whether he would want to anger Spurs fans by moving to London rivals Arsenal.
