Marko Arnautovic will depart Italy for good if he fails to secure a deal at Serie A champions Inter, according to his agent Rob Groener.
The 20-year-old is on loan at the San Siro from Dutch side Twente, but Nerazzurri boss Jose Mourinho has evidently advised the club against making the move permanent.
A number of teams in the Italian league have reportedly shown an interest in the Austrian international, including Lazio, but his representative believes his client’s reputation has been damaged during his doomed spell at Inter and it would be unwise to carry on in Serie A.
“Should he leave Inter, it would be to join a club outside Italy because there everyone would remember him for his stint with the Nerazzurri,” Groener told Goal.com Italy.
“Several clubs are after Arnautovic, but Twente still hold his registration and so we have to speak with them first.”
Arnautovic has not made a single appearance in official games for the Beneamata.
