Inter are still working to offload out-of-favour midfielder Christian Eriksen in the January transfer window, according to an Italian media report today.
As things stand, the Nerazzurri have received no offers for the Denmark international, who was given a rare chance to play in yesterday’s 2-1 win over Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia.
CalcioMercato.com report that chief executive Beppe Marotta and sporting director Piero Ausilio are hopeful of a solution opening up in the coming days when it comes to getting rid of Eriksen, even if it is not a permanent deal.
Inter currently have no interest for the 28-year-old, however, with Eriksen’s former club Ajax having moved onto other targets after initially making an enquiry.
The report explains that Antonio Conte is in complete agreement with club management about using Eriksen so long as he is available, because Inter’s squad does not give him many alternatives and he cannot afford to waste a resource like him.
Conte informed Eriksen directly of his intention to keep playing him and the player was said to be grateful, despite wanting more game time.
Eriksen has been linked with potential moves to Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur recently but it is understood that his annual salary is making a move away difficult.
