Inter Milan chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has been quoted as saying by Goal.com that Christian Eriksen could be sold, amid reported interest from Arsenal.

Eriksen joined Inter from Tottenham Hotspur in January 2020 and has been linked with bitter North London rivals Arsenal.

According to Corriere dello Sport, there could be a swap deal between the Gunners and Inter involving the Denmark international attacking midfielder and Granit Xhaka, as covered by HITC Sport here.

FC Inter News has claimed that Eriksen is on the radar of Arsenal as a potential replacement for Mesut Ozil, as covered by HITC Sport here.

Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has said that the Italian giants could sell Eriksen when the transfer window opens in January.

Goal.com quotes Marotta as saying about Eriksen: “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.

“Conte is using [Eriksen] with respect for the player and the club. At the moment no offers have arrived, but at the appropriate time we will try to make the right decisions.”

Potential Mesut Ozil replacement?

Ozil has been left out of Arsenal’s Premier League and Europa League squads, and manager Mikel Arteta is coy on whether or not the 32-year-old will return to the team after January.

With the German out of contract at the Gunners at the end of the season and unlikely to be handed a new deal, it would make sense for the North London club to look for a potential replacement.

Eriksen may have failed to make a huge impact at Inter, but he was superb during his time at Tottenham and would make Arsenal better.

However, it remains to be seen if the Dane would be willing to move to the Gunners, having been a player at Spurs.
