Speaking recently on the Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano discussed the interest in reported Aston Villa target, Christian Eriksen.
Following his move from Tottenham Hotspur to Inter in what was a £24.3 million deal back in January 2020, Eriksen has so far struggled for both game time and form during his time in Italy.
This season, the £31.5 million-rated 28-year-old has started just four Serie A fixtures for Antonio Conte’s side, with a further five appearances coming from the bench, over which the midfielder has failed to score a goal or provide an assist, while averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.34 – ranking him as the club’s joint third-worst performer in the Italian top flight.
As a result, it has been reported that Inter are keen to move the Dane on over the January transfer window, with Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham United and Aston Villa (as per Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness) all said to be considering signing the midfielder.
However, speaking on a recent episode of the Here We Go podcast, Romano claimed that there have been no bids made for Eriksen as yet.
He said: “No bids, absolutely no bids. Everyone is talking about West Ham, Aston Villa, Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham – there is nothing. OK, obviously they are calling, agents are calling, it’s normal in football, but no one [has] made a bid for Christian Eriksen. So, at the moment, if no bids will arrive, he has to stay with Inter.”

TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments regarding Christian Eriksen…
From Romano’s comments, it would appear as if, despite the number of reports linking Eriksen with a move to a club such as Aston Villa, as yet, there has been no concrete bid made for the player by any side.
And, considering his recent poor form, as well as his reported weekly wage of £229,000, in our opinion, Villa’s apparent lack of definite interest in the 28-year-old could well turn out to be a good thing for the club, both in terms of the team’s overall performance, as well as financially.
