Emirates Stadium side line up hopeful move for in-form marksman.
Arsenal will reportedly look to lure Inter Milan veteran Diego Milito to the Emirates Stadium this month according to the Daily Express.
The 33 year old Argentine has started all but one of Inter’s Serie A fixtures this season and despite his advancing years is a crucial member of Andrea Stramaccioni’s first team set-up but Arsene Wenger may feel that a fresh challenge in the Premier League could tempt the former Genoa man.

Milito has racked up over 200 top tier goals in a career that has seen the former Genoa man win domestic honours in Italy and Argentina as well as playing a pivotal role in the Nerazzurri’s Champions League triumph in 2009/10.
Indeed in his first season at the San Siro Milito scored 30 goals to help Jose Mourinho’s side to a treble that also including a Serie A and Coppa Italia double.
Diego Milito has scored eight goals in 18 Serie A matches this season and is still a crucial member of Andrea Stramaccioni’s first team set-up but the veteran has been linked with a move to finish his career in his native Argentina but the chance to try his luck in the Premier League may tempt the lethal finisher.
Wenger may see an experienced talent like Milito as an ideal alternative to first team strikers Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott and his pursuit of Barcelona forward David Villa does seem to suggest that the French boss is willing to bring in a player of advanced years to help strengthen his attack.
