Inter Milan legend Beppe Bergomi has claimed that his former club made an error signing Christian Eriksen and admitted that he would have preferred Harry Kane or Son Heung-min instead.
Inter paid £16.9m to sign the Denmark international from Tottenham back in January of this year.
Despite Eriksen only having six months left to run on his contract with Tottenham at the time, it appeared like the Nerazzurri had pulled off a real coup, considering the 28-year-old had been one of the Premier League’s outstanding playmakers for more than five years.
However, the midfielder has not got going since moving to the San Siro and does not appear to have convinced Antonio Conte that he can have a part to play.
Reports back in Italy indicate that Eriksen could leave the club when the transfer market reopens in January (Football Insider).
Bergomi admitted that he had never been convinced by the Dane even during his time in North London.
The former Italy defender told Tuttomercatoweb: “I have never been an admirer of Eriksen: watching Tottenham I would have immediately picked up Kane or Son, while on others I would have struggled more.
“There was a market opportunity which however ended up putting the manager in difficulty. An opportunity that also came to cost on the whole: Eriksen has important qualities, I say that he did not come in a favourable situation “.
