Inter Milan are considering a controversial swap deal involving Christian Eriksen that would see the midfielder return to England not to his old club Tottenham, but their bitter rivals Arsenal, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The newspaper claims that Eriksen is set for a return to the Premier League after just one year, having struggling to land a regular starting place under Antonio Conte, and that an exchange deal could be the simplest way for Inter to move him on.
Corriere dello Sport reports that Arsenal are one potential suitor, and that a swap deal involving Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka is an option that interests the Nerazzurri.
Xhaka’s playing time at Arsenal has been reduced following the summer arrival of Thomas Partey, but would Eriksen be willing to move to the Emirates Stadium?
Inter are also exploring the idea of offering Eriksen to Manchester United in return for either Fred or Nemanja Matic, or Chelsea for N’Golo Kante.
