Inter outcast Christian Eriksen is set to leave the club in January, being linked with numerous clubs, including Wolverhampton Wanderers, who have emerged as a surprise destination for the Danish international.


The former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is set to leave Inter after just a year at the club, with him not being in Antonio Conte's plans.


Arsenal have also been linked with Eriksen, along with his former club Ajax, who are interested in resigning the playmaker.


Sky Sports Italy are reporting that Inter are yet to receive an official bid for Eriksen, yet Ajax and Wolves have entered talks with Eriksen's representatives.


When he joined in January, Eriksen signed a four-and-a-half year contract with Inter, yet last month, Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta confirmed that he will be allowed to leave this month after being made surplus to requirements at the club.


Marotta stated that "Eriksen is on the transfer list," adding that "He has struggled to settle into the squad, he is not functional to the squad. That's just an objective fact."


"That is not any insult towards his professionalism, there is no punishment, it’s just a situation that has developed and it’s only fair to give him the chance to go where he can play more regularly."


Several Wolves fans cannot believe that Eriksen is being linked with the club, with some saying that they should "Pay whatever it takes" as he would be a "quality" and a "phenomenal" signing.


Wolves have also been linked with free agent Diego Costa, as they look for a short-term replacement for the injured Raul Jimenez.


A fan said that Eriksen and Costa would be great signings, as "At the moment we [Wolves] have a short squad, any quality will be a blessing" adding that it "Might be something different on set-pieces."
