Things haven't gone to plan for Christian Eriksen in Italy.
He departed Tottenham Hotspur last January with the hope of achieving bigger and better things at Inter Milan, a club who at the time, looked in a better position to challenge for major silverware. The grass, however, has not been greener for the Dane. He has started just four league games this season, failing to complete 90 minutes in a single fixture, across all competitions. Antonio Conte continues to opt for more robust options in the middle, preferring the trio of Nicolò Barella, Marcelo Brozović and Roberto Gagliardini.
With Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martínez up-top, they haven't lost out in the final third either. Inter have re-found their form and currently sit second in the table. Eriksen has done little to contribute, and is struggling to get back into the first-team picture.
Should he wish to depart though, he isn't likely to be short of any takers. The Italians could be open to a short-term loan exit - in the current climate, many clubs may take up this low-risk deal.
Arsenal are one of the most obvious teams that spur to mind, given the lack of creativity in their XI. Mikel Arteta is fighting for his life at present, and will surely be looking to January for resolutions. Other clubs that have been mentioned in the rumour mill are Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona.
