Inter Milan links with Christian Eriksen continue in the Italian media, with the Serie A club eyeing on a up a free transfer for next summer.

It may not be too hard to argue that signing for Inter on a free transfer wouldn’t exactly be the blockbuster move Eriksen has been eyeing up in recent months. Inter may be a huge Italian club and Antonio Conte seems to have them on a better track, yet they’re hardly Real Madrid or Barcelona.

SportMediaSet reports Eriksen is Inter’s ‘big dream’, and the player has rejected Jose Mourinho’s attempts to convince him over a renewal because he wants to look through the offers he expects to receive.

Inter are planning to offer the player a contract worth €10m, a figure which is likely to be after tax. New tax laws in Italy benefit those coming from outside to work and that will enable Inter to pay less on a gross basis than they would have otherwise.

Contacts are said to be continuing with the player’s agent Martin Schoots, and he’s reported to have been ‘promised a rich commission’ on the potential transfer.

The worry for the Milan club is that someone else snaps him up in January, something they don’t seem too prepared to do themselves.
