Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen could be leaving the Serie A club next month after struggling to settle in Italy after moving from English Premier League club Tottenham in January, said club executive director Giuseppe Marotta.

The Danish international has fought for the playing time under coach Antonio Conte in Italy and has only played four Serie A games this season. Less than half of his 38 games have already been played.

“Is Eriksen on the market? I would say yes. [Inter sporting director] Piero Ausilio said it … I can repeat it again, “Marotta told Sky Italy ahead of the Serie A 2-1 win over Verona on Wednesday.

“But it’s not a punishment … he’s a player who has had some problems adjusting to life at Inter. Let’s say he’s not functional for the team but this is an objective fact that doesn’t affect his professionalism decreases. ” .

“But it is also right to give him the opportunity to look for more playing time elsewhere. Of course we have to find a solution.”

Sources told ESPN last month that Arsenal were offered the opportunity to sign Eriksen in a deal worth less than the £ 16.9million Spurs paid by Inter.

The transmission window will open in January.
