Inter Milan are plotting a move to sign Arsenal pair Andrei Arshavin and Robin Van Persie this summer as San Siro boss Leonardo looks to put his stamp on the Champions League holders having taken over the manager’s post from Rafa Benitez in December.
Arsene Wenger will be glad to see a host of prospective suitors lining up for Gunners striker Robin Van Persie as clearly moves to snap them up go some way to showing just what they he has to offer. The Dutchman has been in sparkling form and injury free since late November and has shown just how lethal a finisher he can be when fully fit.
Andrei Arshavin on the other hand has had something of an up and down season with the Russian looking out of sorts and at times distinterested when on Arsenal duty, so much so that Wenger had no choice other than to drop the 29 year old playmaker to the bench.
A number of sources have stated that his poor form is down to his being homesick but the player himself has stated that he hasn’t felt fully fit and has made noises about wanting to prove himself to the Emirates faithful and his winner against Barcelona will certainly have pleased his supporters.
Inter Milan boss Leonardo has enjoyed a bright start to his reign at the club and has assurances from president Massimo Moratti that he will have significant funds to reinvest in his squad and will therefore have the money to make an offer to sign the Arsenal pair, who are valued at a combined total of around £45m.
Clearly if Arsenal manage to end their long silverware drought this season then the hopes of snaring either player will decrease significantly, the same could of course be said of a few of Wenger’s first team squad, including a certain Cesc Fabregas who will no doubt once again be the target of a Barcelona advance.
