Speaking shortly before Inter beat Napoli on Monday night, Nerazzurri director Beppe Marotta denied he has made any contact with Tottenham over Christian Eriksen but insisted the club will be busy on the transfer market this month.
“We are having various contacts with agents and clubs to increase the quality level of a squad that is already doing extraordinary things,” Marotta told Sky Italia. “I prefer not to name names, but we are very active on the transfer market. Who we get depends also on those who exit.
“Right now, we are seeking a midfielder and a winger. If players should ask to leave, we will try to make them happy, but so far we have not received any such pressure from our players.”
“Inter are often linked with players of great quality, and that is flattering, but we have not had any contact with Tottenham. Eriksen is a talented player, I don’t need to tell you that, and he will be a free agent in June 2020.
“I think many clubs are interested, he is an interesting player, but I will not stand here and tell you that we are in negotiations with his club or agent.”
