The Denmark midfielder, who only joined the Serie A club from Tottenham in January, has struggled for playing time this season and Marotta has admitted he does not fit into manager Antonio Conte's system.

Eriksen has already cast doubt on his future at San Siro and now, just a week after suggesting he could leave if he wishes, Marotta has said the 28-year-old could be "functional" for them in the January transfer window.

Eriksen joined Inter in a £16.9m deal in January, having become unsettled at Tottenham after the 2018-19 season, when Spurs reached the Champions League final.
