Last month, Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta admitted Christian Eriksen is on the club’s “transferable list” for the winter market.
The 28-year-old is unhappy with his situation at the San Siro and has been linked with several Premier League clubs. The list includes Spurs’ arch-rivals, Arsenal.
For the past few weeks, multiple reports coming out of Italy have mentioned Gunners interest in the attacking midfielder.
On January 4th, Inter Live reported Mikel Arteta’s side ‘can be considered on pole’ for the Denmark international as the track leading to Arsenal is ‘hot’.
Watford sporting director Cristiano Giaretta has given an interview to TuttoMercatoWeb, in which he was asked to share his views on the possibility of the former Tottenham star ending up at the Emirates.
“Arsenal are regaining confidence. They’re walking again and Eriksen, honestly, could be of use there [at Arsenal],” Giaretta said.
A move away from the San Siro in the winter market could provide Eriksen an opportunity to feel important.
The player didn’t adapt very well at Inter and on this topic, the Hornets director explained: “In light of the facts, yes. But every player needs trust, an opportunity. And at Inter he had few opportunities. He must feel strong, important.”
Denmark national team coach Kasper Hjulmand has also advised Eriksen to leave Antonio Conte’s side in the ongoing window.
“I am convinced that Christian makes the right decisions that benefit both his club career and the Danish national team,” Hjulmand was quoted as saying by Ekstra Bladet.
