Diego Milito's agent has revealed that he is currently in England holding talks with a number of Premier League clubs.

The Argentine international has long-since been a target for Manchester City and Tottenham, who both made approaches for the player last summer.

But in the close-season Milito snubbed the overtures from England when he left Real Zaragoza, instead preferring to return to his former club Genoa in a near £10million deal.

The 29-year-old - who has an outstanding goal-scoring record since moving to Europe in 2004 - is now seemingly ready to transfer to England.

Italian champions Inter Milan are also thought to be serious candidates to sign him, but agent Fernando Hidalgo has revealed that he is currently in London locked in talks.

The news is a major shock as only last month he stated that the player would be staying in Italy, as he doubted any club would meet Genoa's asking price of around £30million.

"Milito and Inter? I am in London now," he told Calcio Mercato.

"I am talking with some teams, but I cannot say which teams.

"These teams are interested."

Asked whether Milito would make a move to England, he replied: "Of course, otherwise I would not be here."

Only this week Manchester United have been credited with a strong interest in Milito after one of Sir Alex Ferguson's scouting network saw him smash a hat-trick in last week's derby victory over Sampdoria.
