Inter To Buy Twente Starlet Arnautovic With 'Recovery Clause' - Report

The Austrian international looks set to join Serie A soon. The question is how long will he stay?
The negotiations between FC Twente and Inter for Marko Arnautovic seem to be coming to a successful resolution as the Dutch club have agreed to insert a recovery clause in the Austrian's contract.

The 20-year-old fractured his foot last season and has been recovering with the help of the Inter medical staff, despite the fact he is still a Twente player.

This issue has been the main stumbling block with regards to a permanent transfer. Initially, the player will go on-loan to the Nerazzurri, but a clause in his contract states if he is 'clinically cured' then Jose Mourinho's side must buy the player in January, according to Tuttosport.

The player, who scored 12 times in 28 appearances in the Eredivisie last season, would sign a five-year deal with Inter and command a transfer fee in the region of €10 million if he does indeed recover.

The forward's style of play has often been compared to current Inter star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
