Inter Milan have confirmed the signing of Denmark international Christian Eriksen from Premier League outfit Tottenham. The 27-year-old star did not extend his contract with the English club and now faces a fresh challenge in a different country to start a new chapter for his career.

I couldn’t wait to join, it’s wonderful to be here and I’m happy to be a new Inter player. I’m very excited and can’t wait to introduce myself to the fans.” Considered one of the key players for the English side’s midfield position, the Danish star scored 69 goals and made 89 assists in 305 matches for Tottenham.
