Agent: Song not set for Inter switch

Alex Song’s agent has rubbished talk that the Arsenal midfielder is set for a summer switch to Inter Milan after despite linking him with a move to the Serie A giants.

The Cameroon international has flourished this season operating in a deep lying midfield role developing into a key figure in the Gunners engine room. His fine form at the Emirates Stadium hasn’t gone unnoticed with Inter rumoured to be planning an approach to bring Song to the San Siro once the current season ends as Head Coach Andrea Stramaccioni plans a major squad overhaul.

It was claimed that the 24-year-old’s representative Christophe Mongai had already been in contact with members of the Nerazzurri hierarchy to talk about a possible deal. Mongai has refuted that talk he’s been in touch with the Italians insisting it’s merely hearsay.

Speaking to he said: “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.”

Arsene Wenger would loathe to lose Song just a year after seeing Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri leave North London under a cloud in the last summer transfer window. Mongai maintains the midfielder, who has won 30 caps for his country, will remain at Arsenal for the time being. But when asked if his client would consider playing in Italy at some point he refused to rule out a future move to Serie A.

“Yes, but Alex is one of the most important Arsenal players as is clear from the fact that (Arsene) Wenger always starts him. So I don’t think the Gunners are going to sell him during the summer transfer window.”
