Christian Eriksen has begun to doubt his future at Inter Milan after the Serie A side identified two players in his position as their prime summer objectives
Eriksen has struggled for form and fitness since joining Inter from Tottenham Hotspur for €20million back in January, with Antonio Conte publically showing his frustration for the Dane’s lack of attitude.
The 28-year-old left London at the peak of his powers and is not comfortable playing second fiddle under Conte, especially now that the Italian manager considers adding another player to that position.
Stefano Sensi, Nicolo Barella, and Marcelo Brozovic all compete with Eriksen for a place in the starting eleven, but Inter’s ambition to hire Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal and Brescia’s Sandro Tonali could blow the highly-rated playmaker out of the water.

According to the Daily Mail, Eriksen has started to reconsider his options after finding out Inter’s plan to add more competition to his position, as he looks for regular first-team action.
Before moving to the Giuseppe Meazza, the former Ajax midfielder had plenty of options to choose from, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Barcelona, all showing appreciation for his services.
Inter eventually won the race for Eriksen’s signature by handing him a lucrative €10m-a-year contract, taking him away right under Real Madrid’s noses.
However, a lackadaisical attitude could cost the Denmark international his career in Serie A less than six months since moving to the Apennines, especially if Beppe Marotta manages to land Vidal and Tonali.
