Inter are considering a move for unsettled Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, according to ilsussidiario.net.
With Adriano leaving in mid-season and Julio Cruz and Hernan Crespo set to depart the San Siro this summer, coach Jose Mourinho is searching for reinforcements in attack and Van Persie would seem to fit the bill.
The 25-year-old is reportedly unhappy with the new contract being offered to him by the London outfit and Arsenal could cash in rather than risk losing the player for free in the future.
Van Persie only cost Arsenal €3 million back in 2004, when they purchased him from Feyenoord. The latest reports indicate that he could move for as little as €9 million.
The versatile striker has made 41 appearances this season in all competitions for his club, finding the back of the net 18 times.
Earlier in the day, the Italian press claim that the Nerazzurri have confirmed they are close to signing Genoa hitman Diego Milito. However, that would still leave them with just Milito, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Mario Balotelli up front for next season.
