ARSENAL are reportedly ‘looking at’ a shock move for former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen has found himself frozen out under former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte at the San Siro.
And he could provide the attacking spark the Gunners need with Mikel Arteta‘s side sitting 15th in the Premier League, four points off the relegation zone.
A horrific start to the season has seen Arsenal take 14 points from as many games with the side mustering just 12 goals, the second fewest in the league behind only Burnley.
Eriksen has featured for just 274 minutes of Serie A action across eight appearances this season.
But the report suggests Inter are prepared to ship him out on loan – with Arsenal one of the most likely destinations – as they fear it will be tough to broker a permanent deal away in January.
Having spent seven years at White Hart Lane – scoring 69 goals and providing 89 assists in 305 appearances – it would certainly ruffle feathers if Eriksen returned to the Premier League with Arsenal.
He has been linked with a move away as the playmaker is keen to get some more game time ahead of the delayed Euro 2020 tournament next summer.
Eriksen has failed to complete 90 minutes in any competition for Inter this season and has had zero goal involvements.
Inter are reportedly keen on a potential swap deal with a player moving to the San Siro from the Emirates.
And midfielders Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos have both been linked although Ceballos’ parent club Real Madrid would have to sign off on any move for the Spaniard.
