Italian journalist and transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio discussed Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen and his adaption to coach Antonio Conte’s tactical system in an interview on ‘Speciale Calciomercato l’Originale’, hosted by Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia earlier today.

“There is the idea of trying to change the system just to allow Eriksen to get the most out of his game, to move to a 3-4-1-2 formation to give him the opportunity to play in his real role and not as a midfielder with speed and intensity like he has done prior. These are just ideas that Conte is debating and then he’ll see with the club if it’s possible move market ideas to look for players who can play in a 3-4-1-2 formation rather than the 3-5-2 formation.”

Inter signed the 28-year-old Danish midfielder from Premier League side Tottenham in the January transfer window, in a deal worth around €20 million, despite the fact that his contract with the North London club would have expired at the end of this season.

Eriksen has made eight appearances across all competitions so far this season for the Nerazzurri, scoring one goal and providing one assist in that time.

The former Spurs talisman has been criticised by many in Italy since his arrival in January, with some claiming that he is not a good fit for Conte’s tactical system. Others have defended the player, saying that it takes time to adapt, especially considering the language barrier and new culture.
