Everton have expressed an interest in wantaway Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen, reports in Italy claim.
Eriksen joined Inter Milan from Tottenham last January, but his move to Italy has not gone to plan.
Inter have already put the playmaker on the transfer list after he struggled to find a regular role in Antonio Conte’s plans.
There will be fierce competition for the 28-year-old in the January transfer window. He reportedly would consider returning to Tottenham, but that seems unlikely.
Instead, he has been heavily linked with a move to rivals Arsenal. More recently, interest from Wolves emerged.
Now, yet another candidate has emerged to take him back to the Premier League. According to La Stampa, Everton have enquired about signing Eriksen.
Carlo Ancelotti knows the Italian market well, and could try to lure Eriksen back to the Premier League.
The report claims that Inter could allow Eriksen to leave on loan if they cannot afford a permanent signing. However, any club taking him on such terms would have to pay his wages in full.
He currently earns around £120,000-per-week, which could prove problematic. But if he can recapture his best form from his Tottenham days, he could be a worthwhile investment for any side.
Arsenal still battling for Eriksen
The report from La Stampa does not discount Arsenal’s interest in the playmaker.
The Gunners are in need of more creativity and Eriksen could fill that void, even though he has not contributed to a single goal this season.
Therefore, Arsenal have also made enquiries about the Denmark international. However, the Premier League is not the only potential destination for Eriksen, so any interested parties will have to act quickly.
For example, ex-Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could try to reunite with the player at PSG. He has not ruled out anything when it comes to “big players” as he prepares to alter his new squad this month.
