There is no certainty that Inter will replace Christian Eriksen if he leaves the club in January, according to an Italian media report.
The Nerazzurri have been strongly linked with signing a new central midfielder alongside a new striker to bolster their short-staffed attacking department.
As per today’s print edition of Corriere della Sera, however, Inter’s owners Suning have made it clear that it is imperative for costs to be reduced during this month’s transfer window.
Eriksen has been strongly linked with moves to a wide range of clubs including Paris Saint-Germain, Ajax and Arsenal, with numerous reports claiming that Inter’s transfer business in January is entirely dependent on selling the Danish international.
Stories elsewhere yesterday suggested Inter are now even open to letting the under-performing 28-year-old depart on a loan basis, provided that the loaning club pay all of his wages.
Eriksen has made just five starts in all competitions under Antonio Conte this season and is again expected to be left out of today’s starting XI for the match against Sampdoria.
