Inter manager Antonio Conte says that Christian Eriksen's future is in the hands of the club as the Danish midfielder seems destined for an exit.

The former Spurs midfielder signed a four-year contract with the Italian side but, in recent weeks, it hasbecome clear that he is unlikely to see out that four-year deal.

Eriksenhas made just 12appearances this season and has scored zero goals after scoring four times in 26 outings last campaign.

Having fallen out of Conte's plans, Eriksen appears set for an exit, withCEOGiuseppe Marotta confirming in December thattheplaymaker will be transfer listed in January.

"He has struggled to settle into the squad, he is not functional to the squad. That’s just an objective fact," Marotta toldSky Italy.

Eriksen played the final 20 minutes of Wednesday's clash with Sampdoria as Inter fell 2-1.

And, after the match, Conte was asked about Eriksen's situation and whether or not anything has changed since Marotta's statement.

“I try to make the most of the options available based on the situation," he said."I am at the complete disposal of the club and any decision they make on the transfer market, so there’s nothing else I can do.

“The club knows perfectly well if there need to be players going out or coming in. I just work, the way I have done since the moment I arrived at Inter. Any decision that is made will always be shared by me.”

One potential landing spot for Eriksen is Paris Saint-Germain, now managed by Mauricio Pochettino, who worked with the playmaker for five seasons at Spurs.

When asked about Eriksen, Pochettinosaid he is "looking at all the possibilities", playing coy when it comes to potential transfers.

Inter currently sit second in Serie A, sitting one point behind rivals AC Milan who have a game in hand.
