Inter Milan are considering a swap deal between Christian Eriksen and Lucas Torreira according to Italian publication Tuttosport.
It would prove ambitious considering Dane’s rivalry with Arsenal from his time at Tottenham, for whom he played 305 times for between 2013 and 2020.
The report claims that Inter are eyeing a back-up for Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, and are considering a move for the Gunners loanee.
But that may prove a tough deal to complete as Torreira will want regular game time after struggling to win the trust of Diego Simeone in the heart of Atletico’s midfield.
Torreira has made just 13 appearances in all competitions this season for Simeone at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Meanwhile, Eriksen is enduring his own struggles at the San Siro, having fallen out of favour under Conte after scoring four goals and creating just four assists in his 40 appearances.
The Denmark international hasn’t been able to adapt to Conte’s way of thinking and his days at the San Siro appear numbered.
Negotiations reportedly haven’t begun yet between Inter and Arsenal over the potential swap deal.
However, the Italian outfit are looking to send him out on loan to the Premier League provided his new club pay his wages in full.
