Arsenal could be ready to make a renewed bid for Inter Milan attacker Ricky Alvarez this summer.
talkSPORT have reported that Gunners manager Arsene Wenger tried to sign the Argentinean last year but he opted to move to San Siro rather than Emirates Stadium.
The report claims the 24-year-old cost the Serie A side £10million when he joined them from Velez Sarsfield, but Arsenal would not be require dot match that fee as he has only made 15 appearances for Inter this season.
Inter had a disastrous beginning to the season, their worst for decades, and the report claims they could be ready to make a major overhaul of the failing squad, though they have recovered somewhat in recent weeks and now lie in seventh.
Alvarez is a tall attacking midfielder or forward and his style of play has been likened to Real Madrid’s Kaka, but he has not featured as regularly as he would have liked, mostly due to him playing in a similar role to Wesley Sneijder.
