Arsenal midfielder Alex Song will not be joining Inter Milan this summer, according to his agent Christophe Mongai.

Sky Sports reports how the 24-year-old Cameroon international has been heavily linked with a switch to the San Siro, as the Serie A giants look lure him to Italy after an impressive season in north London.

Song has been one of Arsenal's standout performers in 2011-12, regularly linking up well with Gunners captain Robin van Persie, providing numerous assists for the Dutchman this campaign.

Arsene Wenger signed the African ace from Bastia back in 2005, and despite a slow start to life in England, he has now developed into an important first-team regular at the Emirates Stadium.

Speaking to, Song's representative moved to play down speculation linking his client with a summer exit.

"I don't know anything about these rumours but I can assure you that I've never had contact with (Inter sporting director Marco) Branca or with the other Inter leaders," confirmed Mongai.

Song still has two years to run on his existing Arsenal contract, but his agent did reveal that the player holds ambitions to one day test himself in Italy.

"Yes, but Alex is one of the most important Arsenal players as is clear from the fact that Wenger always starts him," he continued.

"So I don't think the Gunners are going to sell him during the summer transfer window."
