Inter Milan 'interesting', says agent of £11m Arsenal star

Published Add your comment

The agent of Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski appears to have done little to cool the recent Serie A transfer speculation surrounding his client - with Nassim Touihri describing Inter Milan as 'an interesting club that wants to invest'.

Podolski - who joined the Gunners in a deal from Bundesliga outfit Koln back in 2012 - has found regular first-team football slightly hard to come by this season.

Although he has struggled with injury, the German international has featured on just 12 occasions for Arsenal in the Premier League during 2013/14 and earlier this week reports suggested that Inter had made enquiries concerning the £11 million-rated striker  - something his agent has done little to reject.

"At the moment we do not know what will happen in the future," Touihri was reportedly quoted by The Metro.

"Inter an interesting club that wants to invest as it has recently also signed Vidic."

Touhiri also fondly mentioned Podolski's former club, but was keen to stress that no decision had yet been made on his future.

He added: "Cologne is his heart and his passion. But at the moment it is too early to say where Podolski end of play."

If Arsenal were indeed to lose Podolski in the near future, it would appear to increase long-serving manager Arsene Wenger's already obvious need to sign at least one new striker.

With Nicklas Bendtner having already announced his intention to depart the Emirates Stadium when his contract expires at the end of the season, that would leave Arsenal with just Olivier Giroud and the inexperienced Yaya Sanogo to fill that lone striking role.
