Juventus made an attempt to sign Christian Eriksen from Inter in January, according to an Italian newspaper report today.
As per Il Giorno’s print edition, the reigning Italian champions made an approach for the Denmark international a few weeks ago but Inter were never going to consider a deal with their arch rivals.
Juve were one of several clubs to move for Eriksen, alongside English and French clubs, but Eriksen has stayed with Inter and now appears well on his way to getting back to his usual self after a difficult year at Inter following his arrival from Tottenham Hotspur last January.
He played the full 90 minutes on Saturday as the Nerazzurri defeated Benevento 4-0 at San Siro.
Il Giorno’s report touched upon speculation last week that Roma had offered Inter a swap deal involving Eriksen and Edin Dzeko, explaining that no such approach ever took place.
It was said to be an agent with close ties to Roma who spread false news, calling newsrooms and circulating the news, but Inter denied the reports and claimed they would never have conducted such a deal.
