Rival sporting director reckons £25M star could join Arsenal this month

Denmark international Christian Eriksen hasn’t really switched his gear ever since completing a move to Inter Milan from Tottenham Hotspur. The attacking midfielder has made 39 appearances for Inter Milan and has been warming the bench more often than not this season.

It is sad to see the 28-year-old struggling to get proper game time as he made only 4 appearances for the club this season. After his move from Spurs to Inter, a lot was expected from the ever-so-talented footballer despite a pretty decent spell in the first half of the 2020 season.

But in reality, the attacking midfielder never seemed like a good choice for Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 formation. While the fans expected him to make a mark for himself at the club, he has been linked with a move away.

If reports doing the rounds are to be believed, Inter Milan are willing to release him in the winter transfer window. With his ongoing struggles to sneak into Conte’s system, the Danish professional footballer has been linked with a transfer back to England.

He has also been linked with a move to France and Spain. Currently, Arsenal and PSG are reportedly looking to sign him. However, neither Arsenal nor PSG has contacted Nerazzurri over a potential transfer yet.

However, Christian Eriksen will make the wise choice that helps both his club career including his Danish national team. Earlier, Denmark head coach Kasper Hjulmand added that it is indeed a waste of Eriksen’s talents for him being sidelined at Inter Milan.

Eriksen could return to the Premier League

With Eriksen not getting enough game time to showcase his sheen on the pitch, he is expected to leave the club this month. Cristiano Giaretta told Tuttomercatoweb that the midfielder could return to the English Premier League with Arsenal Football Club.

Meanwhile, Inter director Beppe Marotta already had confirmed that Eriksen is free to leave. As per FC Inter News, former Tottenham talisman is a £25 million target for Arsenal.

Wouldn’t be surprised to see Eriksen at Arsenal: Giaretta

With the emergence of Arsenal academy talent Emile Smith Rowe, it would be interesting to see what the future holds in store for Eriksen. However, Giaretta, who is a veteran sporting director believes Eriksen would return to Premier League this month.

The experienced sporting director feels that Arsenal has regained good shape in the ongoing season. The Gunners have won 4 games across all competitions this season. “Arsenal are regaining confidence. They have started marching again,” he said.

Giaretta, who is currently plying his trade in Britain with Watford said that Eriksen would do quite well with the Gunners. “Honestly, I wouldn’t see him doing badly (with the Gunners),” Giaretta added in a statement.

“In light of the facts, yes (he struggled at Inter). But every player needs trust, an opportunity. And at Inter he had few opportunities. He must feel strong, important.” Eriksen had a forgettable spell at Inter Milan. Having played just 4 Serie A games, he didn’t score or assist this season.
