Arsenal midfielder Alex Song wants to play in Italy at some point – but there has been no contact with Inter Milan over a transfer, according to his agent.
Song, who has two years left on his Gunners contract, has been linked with a move to Inter, whose hand is likely to be strengthened if the Gunners fail to secure Champions League football for next season.
The Cameroon international has come on leaps and bounds under the watchful eye of Arsene Wenger, so much so that he is now considered to be amongst the best central midfielders in the league.
Making his name as a holding midfielder, Song has proved this season that there is a lot more to his game than what meets the eye, with an impressive nine assists to hist name so far.
His impressive midfield displays now make him an irreplaceable asset to the Gunners, with his on-pitch relationship with captain Robin van Persie proving to be one of the deadliest partnerships in the league.
Song, who has two years left on his Gunners contract, has been linked with a move to Inter, who will feel all the more confident to seal the player’s signature this summer should Arsenal fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
It is likely, however, that Arsenal will have no desire to cash in while their star is still on the rise.
“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,” Song’s agent Christophe Mongai told interlive.it, as reported by ESPN.
When asked if Song would one day consider a move to Italy, his agent replied:
“Yes, but Alex is one of the most important Arsenal players as is clear from the fact that Wenger always starts him. So I don’t think the Gunners are going to sell him during the summer transfer window.”
