Inter Milan chief Guiseppe Marotta has eluded to Christian Eriksen wanting to leave the club less than a year after joining.
The Dane made the switch from Tottenham in January following several successful years in north London.
But he has been unable to make the desired impact under Antonio Conte at the San Siro.
This term especially his form has been poor and he doesn't look like a player capable of firing Inter to the Serie A title.
And Conte is now ready to offload Eriksen and is awaiting offers.
Marotta told DAZN: "Conte responded in expansive fashion. We can't keep a player who at the moment is asking to be sold.

"We will make the right evaluations. At the moment he's available and Conte is using him in a way that is respectful of the club.
"Offers? At the. moment they have yet to arrive. Should that change we will try to find the right combination."
Eriksen has started in three of Inter's seven games thus far this term.
He was though left on the bench for his side's game with Torino on Sunday.
And Conte spoke damningly about the playmaker who he believes has had sufficient opportunities to stake his case for more involvement.

"I don't know about the language. As I said before, I always make choices for the good of Inter and therefore I try to do everything in the right way," he told Italian media.
"Eriksen has had many opportunities since the beginning of the year and has played more than many team-mates.
"When I deem it appropriate, he will play in the opening 11 or in a game in progress, otherwise I will make other decisions.
"As for the role, in my opinion he cannot play in front of the defence.
"He has an important shot, right and left, so putting him in front of the defence would totally distort him. This is my technical evaluation."
