An exit from San Siro for the Danish playmaker appears increasingly likely in January with him finding it hard to adapt to Italian football.

Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has confirmed that Christian Eriksen will be allowed to quit the club when the transfer market reopens.

The midfielder has been unable to make any impact at San Siro ever since his arrival from Tottenham last January.

With the 28-year-old having made just five starts across all competitions this term, it has been reported that manager Antonio Conte has already given up on him as the former Tottenham man struggles to adapt to the manager’s tactical system.

The midfielder’s future is a hot topic for discussion lately as he is heavily linked with a return to the Premier League, with Arsenal supposedly the most interested party.

Eriksen is contracted to Inter till 2024 but should he want to leave, Marotta insists the club will not hold him against his will.

“I clearly add that we will not hold a footballer back if they ask to be transferred. We will have to make the right evaluations,” the club’s club chief executive officer told DAZN, via Sempreinter.

“At the moment no offers have arrived, but at the appropriate time we will try to make the right decisions.”
