Alex Song: Has been linked with a summer move to Inter Milan
The agent of Arsenal midfielder Alex Song has moved to play down speculation linking the Cameroonian with a summer switch to Inter Milan.
The Serie A giants are thought to be keen on luring Song to Italy when the transfer window opens on the back of his impressive season with the Gunners.
The 24-year-old, who joined Arsenal from Bastia in 2005, has two years left to run on his current contract but reports suggest the Gunners could offer him a new long-term deal.
Song's agent, Christophe Mongai, says he has had no contact with Inter and expects Song to remain with Arsene Wenger's side.
"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," he told interlive.it.
Asked if Song wants to play in Italy in the future, he added: "Yes, but Alex is one of the most important Arsenal players as is clear from the fact that Wenger always starts him. So I don't think the Gunners are going to sell him during the summer transfer window."
