Inter Milan are reportedly keen to offer Christian Eriksen to Arsenal with the Serie A giants eager to swap him with Granit Xhaka.

Eriksen has struggled at Inter since leaving Tottenham last January, regularly being left out by Antonio Conte.

The Danish star wants to play regularly ahead of the European Championships, meaning Eriksen could be on his way out come January.

Tuttosport report that it will be difficult for him to leave permanently with Inter keen to earn at least €30m for any deal.

A loan is an option with a potential swap with Arsenal for Xhaka being an option that Inter are reportedly looking at.

The report adds that Eriksen is not overly keen on a loan while he may be hesitant to move to Arsenal given his time at Tottenham.

Eriksen’s former Denmark manager Age Hareide has blasted Conte’s treatment of the midfielder, saying: “First of all, I think it's a shame for Christian.

"But I also think it's completely wrong that Conte is keeping him out so much.

"In my opinion, he is good enough to play for Inter. He proved to be an important player, both for Denmark and for Tottenham in the Premier League, where he was a key player.

"Christian and his agent need to figure this out. But it is clear that the situation is in no way optimal.”

Eriksen had previously said he couldn’t wait to join Inter, stating back in January: “It’s wonderful to be here and I'm happy to be a new Inter player.

“I'm very excited and can't wait to introduce myself to the fans. I've already experienced their warmth, it's been a fantastic welcome. I feel great.

"The numbers say that I did really well in England. It's now time to start a new challenge, I'm really happy to have the opportunity to play in Serie A for a big team. Inter is a fantastic club."
