It is not a secret that Inter Milan crave the service of Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal this winter. But it seems that Barcelona side has repeatedly said that the former Juventus will not be released in the middle of the season. This situation forced the Nerazzurri to divert their targets immediately.
Vidal himself is no stranger to Inter Milan, the midfielder had been a frightening specter for the Nerazzurri while still in the Juventus shirt. The presence of Antonio Conte in the Inter Milan manager’s seat is believed to make Vidal now the club’s main game in the winter. They take advantage of the situation of the player who rarely gets the chance to appear in Barcelona.
The former Bayern Munich player has already given a positive signal to Inter Milan, but it seems that is not the case with Barcelona. Coach Ernesto Valverde has confirmed that Vidal will not be released this January. Inter don’t feel the need to force themselves, they can think of other options, like Christian Eriksen for example.
For information, Christian Eriksen’s contract at Tottenham will expire in June 2020. Until now, there were no signs that he would extend the contract. That makes one of the best attack creators in the Premier League linked to a number of clubs. Inter Milan could be one of them, let alone the Danish national team midfielder is still very young, much younger than Vidal.
Inter are looking for new midfielders to be recruited in the January transfer window. Eriksen is believed to be one of the Nerazzurri’s main targets. One consideration might be Eriksen’s creativity in designing opportunities. Just look at the statistics for seven seasons defending Tottenham Hotspur.
62 assists have been recorded by the Danish national team midfielder so far, in fact there were no other players in the Premier League from 2013 to 2020 who could record as many assists. He also has collected 51 goals in the Premier League. In other words, Eriksen is one of Europe’s best midfielders.
Naturally, if Inter made love by him. However, Inter are not the only interested ones. Manchester United reportedly also wants to snatch it from Tottenham. Actually Spurs are reluctant to release Eriksen, but the player wants to try new challenges in his career.
