    Inter chief suggests Eriksen exit likely: ´We won´t hold back those who ask to leave´

    Christian Eriksen appears likely to leave Inter in January after the club’s CEO Giuseppe Marotta said he will not keep players who want to be sold.

    Eriksen cost Inter a reported €20million in January having refused to sign a new contract at Tottenham, thus allowing him to secure a cut-price move.

    But having found himself on the periphery of the team during his latter days at Spurs, he was lacking momentum upon joining Inter and made only eight Serie A starts before the end of the 2019-20 season.

    It appears Eriksen has done little to convince coach Antonio Conte he is worthy of a place in the team this term, with just three starts to his name in 2020-21 and he is yet to attempt a shot.

    In 22 Serie A appearances for Inter, Eriksen has created just 27 chances, which is way behind Luis Alberto’s 71 in that time, a high for midfielders in the league.

    Similarly, Eriksen’s three goal involvements (one scored, two assisted) is underwhelming compared to Serie A’s most influential midfielders – Henrikh Mkhitaryan leads with 17 (nine goals, eight assists).

    On top of that, Eriksen’s passing – an area considered a strong point of his – has been lacklustre. He has an 83 per cent success rate with regards to distribution, which is unspectacular compared to others in similar roles.

    Conte made it clear on Saturday that he feels Eriksen has had enough opportunities to make an impact and now the writing appears to be on the wall.

    Speaking ahead of Sunday’s 4-2 dramatic win over Torino, in which Eriksen was an unused substitute, Marotta told DAZN: “Conte has already answered exhaustively.

    “I add that, clearly, we must not hold back a player when he asks to be transferred. We will have to make the right assessments.

    “Right now he is available to Conte, who is using him in respect of the players and the club. For now, no requests have arrived from Eriksen, but at the right moment we will try to find the right agreements.”
