According to Sky Sports Italia journalist and transfer expert Gianluca di Marzio, Wolverhampton Wanderers have contacted Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen’s agent as they look to strengthen their squad this month.

The Denmark international left Tottenham Hotspur last January to join the Serie A giants, but has struggled to adjust and is expected to leave before the end of the winter transfer period.
Arsenal, West Ham United, Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid have all been linked with interest in Eriksen, and Wolves and Ajax have joined the race.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are struggling to create chances in the final third and that has seen them win just six of their first 17 Premier League games in 2020-21.
Hiring a player who scored 69 goals and provided 89 assists over eight years at Spurs could help boost their fortunes on the floor, and how they fare in the January transfer window would have a big influence on their campaign.
Having finished seventh in each of the last two seasons in the top flight, not landing a spot in Europe at the end of the season will be a huge disappointment and a blow, and that is why they need a player like Eriksen.
The 28-year-old brings the quality and experience the Wolves need in the final third to the table, and a return to the top flight could be more appealing to him.
The former Spurs star will have no shortage of suitors in the days and weeks ahead, and beating the competition to his signing will be a big move for the Wolves.
However, his annual salary of £ 9 million It could turn out to be a roadblock, and you might have to accept a pay cut to make a move work.
