Simone Inzaghi’s first big task at Inter is to persuade Christian Eriksen to stay, according to a report in the Italian media today.

As per Calciomercato.com, Eriksen raised doubts over his future with the Nerazzurri this week when he said his future would depend on who replaced Antonio Conte as head coach.

Inzaghi has already spoken with Romelu Lukaku to reassure him about Inter’s plans, and now he must do something similar with Eriksen to keep the Danish midfielder onboard.

Lazio’s former boss has already proven he can get the best out of quality players in midfield, with Luis Alberto a fine example from Inzaghi’s five-year stint in the capital.

Elsewhere in midfield, Nicolo Barella and Marcelo Brozovic are both considered fundamental players for Inter and will not depart, albeit Brozovic is still in talks over a new contract with his current deal expiring next summer.

The Croatian’s father, who is acting as his agent, is waiting to receive an offer from Inter over a new deal, but the club certainly don’t want to lose Brozovic.

Roberto Gagliardini and Matias Vecino could stay with Inter as well, the report claimed, because both – in particular Vecino – could be useful squad players under Inzaghi.

Stefano Sensi and Arturo Vidal’s futures at the club are more uncertain, though, with the former known to have interest from Shakhtar Donetsk and Fiorentina.

Vidal is up for sale but the Chilean’s monster salary means it will be difficult for Inter to find a buyer.
