Two years on from writing this article and I think the question is a valid today as it was back then. Is Eder someone who is underappreciated by Inter fans?
Since joining Inter from Sampdoria, Eder has struggled to consistently score with the Nerazzurri, managing just 14 goals in 83 appearances. His scoring rate is higher with the national team where he has scored 6 times in 26 appearances.
Heading into the Euros most Inter fans would have been happy to see the Nerazzurri sell Eder, who has disappointed since joining from Sampdoria.
But did his superb strike against Sweden at Euro 2016, change fans opinion of a player who wants to stay at Inter?
One person who wants to remain at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza is Eder himself as his agent revealed that the striker has no desire to leave Serie A for China.
“These past few months were a little difficult at Inter,” Eder’s agent Andrea Bagnoli told Sky Sport Italia.
“But now I think he will prove himself to be a key player. In his earlier experiences, he took a while to adjust and then he exploded.
“China is a very important market, some rumours are true but he is committed to the project with Inter and he wants to stay in Italy.”
Eder managed just one goal in 14 league appearances for Inter, although this lack of form did not prevent him securing a spot in Antonio Conte’s Azzurri squad.
Have you see enough of Eder at the Euros to convince you that he should be given another chance at Inter next season? Or would you prefer that the Nerazzurri bring in another striker this summer?
