Arsenal are being linked with a loan move for summer midfield target Ricky Alvarez.

The Argentine starlet joined Inter Milan from Velez Sarsfield for £12 million in the transfer window, despite a well-publicised chase for his services from the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger failed to land the talented 23-year-old, but a disastrous start to the Serie 'A' season at the San Siro has left the Italian outfit considering a possible loan exit for the player.

The Metro claims Arsenal are in the running to bring the player to the Emirates just months after his move to Europe, with the decision on Alvarez's immediate future falling to new manager Claudio Ranieri.

A one-cap international, the left-footed attacking midfielder has featured in two games so far this term, both defeats, and is looking for more consistent first team football elsewhere.


It's unclear if Arsenal would be able to offer the player a regular starting spot in their senior side, although the north London club have also made a disappointing start to their own domestic campaign.

Three defeats in five games have left the Arsenal boss looking to strengthen as soon as possible, and a loan move for Alvarez could add to the club's attacking options.
