Inter Milan chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has suggested Christian Erkisen could be allowed to leave the club in January amid interest from a number of top European clubs.
The 28-year-old – who only joined Inter last January from Tottenham in a £17million deal – has struggled for form and game time in Italy, scoring four goals in 33 appearances.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with swap deals for the Denmark international.
And with the January window just over a month away, Marotta has hinted that a move away could be on the cards for Eriksen.
“Conte has already spoken about it thoroughly. I can just add that we do not certainly have to force a player to stay when he asks to leave,” Marotta told DAZN, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“We will have to evaluate the situation. Now he is available for Conte, who has been making him play in [Eriksen’s] respect and in the club’s respect.
“Up to now, we have not received any request from Eriksen, but at the right time we will try to find the right combinations.”
