Goran Pandev has once again reiterated his desire to secure a New Year move to Inter Milan.
The former Lazio striker is available as a free agent after severing ties with the Roman outfit at the end of a contractual dispute.
He is now keen to secure a return to Inter in January, a club he left without making a single senior appearance in 2004.
Jose Mourinho is known to be keen on the Macedonia international, and has expressed a desire to bring him on board, and Pandev admits he would be only too happy to accept an offer from the Portuguese coach.
"Do you really want me to say that I want Inter? Well, I want Inter!" he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I strongly want them. Is that OK? There are plenty of valid reasons behind this. The main one is that they tried to sign me up until three days before the transfer window deadline last August.
"And I can't forget the comments of Mourinho last winter. He said that one like me should never be sold."
Pandev would face stiff competition for a starting berth at Giuseppe Meazza, with Inter already boasting the striking talents of Samuel Eto'o, Diego Milito and Mario Balotelli, but the 26-year-old insists he would welcome the challenge.
"Those three represent the best that a team can have up front," mused Pandev.
"It is already an atomic attack and I hope it will be even more fearful with my contribution.
"I will give headaches to Mourinho. I can play in different roles up front and there will be room for everyone as there are so many games.
"I know that I am joining a strong side and my bet is to be decisive and score goals, even if it is just for half an hour."
