Christian Eriksen has once again been linked with a move to Arsenal.
The 28-year-old former Tottenham player has struggled to nail down a regular starting place at Inter since joining the Italians for £16.9million from Spurs in January.
In November, Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport reported Conte would consider a swap deal with Arsenal that would see Granit Xhaka go the other way.
The Gunners midfielder has been a consistent starter under Mikel Arteta, but faces strong competition from £45m summer signing Thomas Partey, as well as Dani Ceballos.
The report adds that Inter want to see a healthy return on the fee they paid for Eriksen, who has started three of the club’s 10 Serie A games this season.
And Tuttosport have since reported the swap is still on the agenda.
Earlier this month, Eriksen admitted being frustrated by his playing time.
“This is not what I dreamed of. I think all football players want to play as much as possible. It is never fun to sit on the bench, but the coach decides who plays.
“It is a special situation, people want to see me play and I also want to play. However, the coach has different ideas and I have to respect that as a player.
“Obviously, mentally it is hard because I am not accustomed to sit on the bench, but now I have had to get used to it.
“Right now things aren’t going well for Inter, but before, when I wasn’t playing a lot, the team won a lot.”
He added: “I am concentrating on my football, then when the transfer window opens we will see if something will happen or not.”
Eriksen played 305 times for Tottenham after joining from Ajax in 2013.
He scored 51 goals and registered 62 assists in 226 Premier League matches.
Age Hareide, who spent four years coaching Eriksen for the Denmark national team, believes he is good enough to play more for Conte’s side.
“I think it’s a humiliating thing,” he told Danish newspaper BT.
“It’s never fun not to be a starter, but it’s humiliating to be put on the pitch in [injury time], as happened [in the 3-1 win over Bologna].
“Conte is wrong, Eriksen is good enough to be able to play more for Inter.”
