Christian Eriksen could have played his last match for Inter Milan, with club CEO Giuseppe Marotta confirming Wednesday the Danish midfielder was on the transfer list.
The former Tottenham midfielder missed Inter’s final game before Christmas at Verona on Wednesday, with Italian media reporting he had returned to Denmark to be with his wife who is due to give birth to their second child.
“Eriksen is among the transfers,” Marotta told Sky Sport before the game.

The Danish international arrived from Spurs on four-and-a-half-year deal in January for a reported fee of 27.5 million euros ($32.6 million) including bonuses.
But the 28-year-old has scored just four goals in 38 appearances.

He has been linked with moves to French champions Paris Saint-Germain, or a return to the Premier League with Arsenal or Manchester United.
