Christian Eriksen has opened the door to leaving Inter Milan in January – just a year after his transfer from Tottenham.
The Danish midfielder swapped the Premier League for Serie A in the last winter window in a cut-price deal, but things haven’t gone quite as he had hoped.
Eriksen has found himself in and out of the Inter side under boss Antonio Conte and has struggled to reproduce his best form.
Upon signing for the club last January, Eriksen told Inter TV : “I couldn’t wait to get here. It’s amazing to be here…”
But things have already turned sour in the year since.
Speaking to TV2 , Eriksen admitted: “This isn’t what I dreamed of. All players want to play as much as possible, but the coach decides who gets to go on the pitch.
“It is a strange situation, as the fans want to see me playing more and so would I, but the coach has different ideas and as a player I have to respect that.”
The 28-year-old is yet to complete 90 minutes for Inter this season, having started four of his seven appearances with the others coming as a substitute.
He was used in similarly sparing fashion after joining midway through last season, featuring in 17 matches, though more of those were from coming off the bench than in the starting XI.
Should Tottenham consider re-signing Eriksen? Have your say below.
Now despite having another three-and-a-half years to run on his contract, Eriksen seems keen to cut short his Inter nightmare and seek a move elsewhere at the next available opportunity.
“I am concentrating on my football, then when the transfer window opens we will see if something will happen or not,” he said.
It is some fall from grace for Eriksen, who was one of the top players at Spurs before his performances dipped as he pushed to force through his exit.
PSG are believed to be interested in signing the midfielder, but Inter would no doubt want to at least make a profit on the £16.8million they paid for him.
