Even Aston Villa fans will be aware that Christian Eriksen, who swapped Tottenham for Inter last January, isn’t having the time of his life in Italy.

The Denmark international has struggled to make it into Antonio Conte’s plans at San Siro, and there has been a stream of stories explaining the player wants out and certain big clubs are interested.

The issue, however, is that none of them have made a move, leaving the door open for other clubs, like West Ham and Aston Villa, to feel like they might have a chance.

The most obvious option for Eriksen, as things stand, is a move to Paris Saint-Germain, where he would be reunited with Mauricio Pochettino, who got the best out of him at Tottenham.

However, Corriere dello Sport on Tuesday state that ‘during the wait to see if PSG will make a move’, the ‘reference market’ for the Dane remains the Premier League.

Arsenal, once touted as a potential landing spot, are in good form, meaning they may not want to disturb that.

The Italian newspaper adds ‘there are enquiries conducted by intermediaries with West Ham and Aston Villa, but it’s not certain the Dane will eventually accept either of those destinations’.

It seems like it’s entirely up to Eriksen, because ‘the hypothesis of sending him on loan, even dry, has taken shape in hope he will relaunch himself and became permanently sellable after the Euros’.

That means there is an opening for West Ham and in-form Aston Villa if they simply want him on loan for the next six months, but it will also be up to David Moyes and Dean Smith to be very convincing.
