The midfielder has long been linked with a move away from the Serie A giants after his torrid first few months at San Siro, and the reliable journalist is now claiming that he will be leaving the club in January.
“Inter are ready to sell Christian Eriksen in January, they are convinced that this is the best solution for Christian Eriksen and for the team too,” Romano said.
“They want money, that’s around €30 million to sell Christian Eriksen in January.”
The Italian then went on to give more details on Inter’s dream to sign N’Golo Kante and Hertha Berlin’s attempts to bring Eriksen in on loan, before giving a decisive final verdict on the Dane’s future.
“For sure, Christian Eriksen will leave the club.”
This update ought to put Spurs and Arsenal on alert.
The two north London clubs have been linked with a move for the attacking midfielder, and their route to signing him has now been made very clear.
€30 million is the magic number that will land Eriksen from Inter, and it has to be said that this could be a huge bargain for either Spurs or Arsenal.
We all know what Eriksen can do when he’s in form and playing with confidence, and with Spurs needing more depth and Arsenal generally lacking creativity, one would imagine that this would be the perfect signing for either of them.
Of course, it’s easier said than done, Spurs just posted some pretty horrific financial results, while Arsenal made a lot of staff redundant in the summer, so €30 million for an out of form midfielder in January may be a price that they’re unwilling to pay.
This is certainly one to keep an eye on going forward.
