Christian Eriksen told he can leave Inter Milan in January

Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen has been told he can leave the club in January. 

The Dane was signed from Tottenham Hotspur but has been used sparingly by Antonio Conte owing to his poor form. 

The club, through CEO Giuseppe Marotta, has now confirmed the creative midfielder can be allowed to leave as they cut their losses.  

“Yesterday, Conte answered in a very comprehensive way,” Marotta told DAZN. 

Adding; "I clearly add that we will not hold a footballer back if they ask to be transferred. We will have to make the right evaluations.

“Conte is using [Eriksen] with respect for the player and the club. At the moment no offers have arrived, but at the appropriate time we will try to make the right decisions.”

Meanwhile, Inter moved to fifth on the standings with 15 points, after coming from two goals down to see off Torino 4-2 on Sunday. 

Romelu Lukaku scored a brace, with Alexis Sanchez and Lautaro Martinez scoring a goal each.
