Inter are looking to exchange Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen with a strong defensive midfielder, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.
The report details how coach Antonio Conte has already highlighted how the team have a gap in the defensive midfielder role, with only Italian Roberto Gagliardini filling the role.
Considering the 28-year-old Danish midfielder’s failure to impress since his arrival in January from Tottenham, as well as his incredibly high wages, the Nerazzurri are prepared to send him away in the upcoming January transfer window, looking for a defensive midfielder in return.
Intermediaries are currently at work to find a solution, with many options being proposed. The options now are Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, Paris Saint-Germain’s Leandro Paredes and Bayern Munich’s Corentin Tolisso.
The Nerazzurri are not looking to send Eriksen away on loan and instead want a permanent solution, ready to give up on the former Spurs man.
