Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still desperately trying to further strengthen his squad this summer having so far been frustrated in his attempts to land key transfer targets such as Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
The Man Utd boss wants to add to his attacking options before the window closes on October 5th but the Red Devils have failed to agree terms for the England international and are now seemingly eyeing alternative targets.
The likes of Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Perisic and Douglas Costa have all been linked with a move to Old Trafford recently but a new surprise name has emerged with TeamTalk citing a report from TodoFichajes that claims Man Utd are eyeing Eriksen.
According to the report, Solskjaer believes the 28-year-old can provide added creativity to his squad and Manchester United are set to test Inter Milan’s resolve with a £16.5m bid over the coming days.
Eriksen made his name during a seven-year spell at Tottenham but has struggled since joining Inter in a £17m deal back in January as he scored just 1 goal in his 17 Serie A appearances last season.
It’s led to reports that the Italian giants are already looking to cut their losses this summer and it appears Man Utd are eyeing a bargain swoop for the Danish international before the window slams shut.
Signing Eriksen for around £16m would be excellent business by United if the player could rediscover the kind of form he showed during his time at Tottenham but I’d personally be shock if anything came of these reports.
