Christian Eriksen’s situation at Inter Milan has continued to go from bad to worse this season as the Dane has struggled to break into the starting eleven.

Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta admitted last month that the midfielder is not in Antonio Conte’s plans and could ask to leave the club in January (Sky Italia via Sky Sports).

While a return to Spurs has been mooted as a possibility, Jose Mourinho is not said to be keen on having him back at the club.

Meanwhile, the midfielder has also been linked with a shock move to Tottenham’s North London rivals Arsenal (ESPN).

Whatever Eriksen’s next destination is to be, Ekstrabladet’s chief of sport, Allan Olsen (as relayed by Sport Witness) believes that the 28-year-old will be forced out of the club next month.

In his column, Olsen labels Antonio Conte’s decision to bring the attacking midfielder on in the dying seconds of the game against Bologna as the ‘ultimate humiliation’.

The journalist suggested that Conte may have decided to bring Eriksen on in order ‘to provoke a divorce as soon as the January window’.

He reveals that the former Tottenham star may lose ‘a considerable million’ if he leaves Italy in January due to some tax issues and speculates that the Nerrazuri are trying to force his hand.

The column goes on to suggest that Eriksen should not think twice about leaving the San Siro as there will be no shortage of suitors for the midfielder’s services.
