Inter Milan is looking to move on from Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen less than a year after acquiring him from Tottenham. According to multiple reports, Inter is shopping Eriksen around with hopes of recouping the $25 million they invested in him in January.

Reportedly, this price tag attracted several high-profile clubs, and they are ready to jump on the bargain. So far, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be the frontrunners, while Manchester United is also looking to get involved and offer Eriksen a return to Premier League.

Christian Eriksen arrived in Milan as a big-name signing and was lauded as the man that will help the team challenge for the Seria A title. However, the move for the 28-year-old midfielder was reportedly favored more by management than coach Antonio Conte.

This caused Conte to sparsely use Eriksen before driving him out of the squad completely. So far, the captain of Denmark’s national team made three appearances in Seria A this season, spending only 95 minutes combine on the pitch.

It is believed that Inter tried to move away from Eriksen this summer, trying to include him in several player-exchange deals. However, there was no takers at the time.
