Inter consider Eriksen-Torreira swap?

According to Tuttosport, Inter are considering a swap deal between Christian Eriksen and Lucas Torreira.

The Turin-based paper claims the Nerazzurri need to sign a back-up for Marcelo Brozovic and are considering a move for the Arsenal loanee who joined Atletico Madrid on a temporary deal last summer.

Torreira, a former Sampdoria midfielder, has also been linked with Fiorentina and Torino.

Antonio Conte had deployed Eriksen in a playmaker position against Fiorentina last week, but the Dane remained on the bench for 90 minutes against Juventus on Sunday and several reports in Italy confirm the Nerazzurri are willing to sell him.

The 26-year-old has 14 appearances in all competitions so far this season, while Torreira has played 13 games at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Talks between Inter and Arsenal haven’t begun yet, but Eriksen could return to the Premier League on loan, provided his new club pay his full wages.
