Inter midfielder Christian Eriksen is starting to receive interest from clubs in the Premier League, including his former side Tottenham, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
Eriksen was widely expected to leave the Nerazzurri in the January transfer window, but multiple reports this week had suggested the Dane’s hefty €7.5 million net annual salary was putting off all his suitors.
However, Di Marzio told viewers on Sky Sport Italia tonight that there was ‘a bit of movement’ in England.
“Eriksen’s agent is speaking with various club and is starting to uncover some interest, albeit this hasn’t been turned into official offers yet,” he explained.
“Tottenham would gladly take him on loan, though his wages are still a problem because Inter have made it clear they won’t let him join for free.
“A few other clubs are beginning to move as well.”
Eriksen was trialled in an unfamiliar deep-lying play-maker role by Antonio Conte during Wednesday’s Coppa Italia victory away to Fiorentina.
He has made just six starts for Inter in all competitions this season and is likely to be on the bench again for Sunday’s Derby d’Italia against Juventus at San Siro.
Inter signed Eriksen from Tottenham last January in a deal worth €20 million, with his agent Martin Schoots last week filing a legal case against the Nerazzurri for an unpaid commission he was promised as part of the transfer.
