With his contract up in the summer of 2020, Inter Milan have reportedly submitted a £20m bid to try and sign him in January, despite Marotta claiming that there has been no official contact between the clubs.
“Eriksen to Inter in January? It’s not a done deal. Inter are often linked with players of great quality, and that is flattering, but we have not had any contact with Tottenham.
“Eriksen is a talented player, I don’t need to tell you that, and he will be a free agent in June 2020.
“I think many clubs are interested, he is an interesting player, but I will not stand here and tell you that we are in negotiations with his club or agent,” he clarified.
However, according to the report, coach Antonio Conte wants Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal instead of the Danish playmaker, despite the club feeling that Eriksen represents more value for money at just 27 years of age.
