A report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport has highlighted the difficulties that Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen is experiencing at Inter.

The report details how Inter coach Antonio Conte wanted to sign Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal in January, but eventually settling for the former Spurs midfielder at the end of the month. The two players are not similar, as the Chilean is strong in the mezzala role, whereas Eriksen functions better as a trequartista.

Eriksen’s intensity and physical condition need to improve, the report continues, if he is to settle in Milan and become a core part of Conte’s system. The former Juventus and Chelsea coach is an expert of fitting players into his system, with examples being French midfielder Paul Pogba and Vidal at Juventus.

The 28-year-old Dane has made eight appearances across all competitions so far this season for the Nerazzurri. In that time, he has scored one goal and provided one assist.
