The agent of Inter Milan midfielder Thiago Motta has cooled talk of moving to Arsenal.

Reports in Italy have linked the 28-year-old with a move away from the San Siro this summer, with the Gunners among the clubs reportedly interested in his services.

However, his agent Daniele Canovi told Gazzetta dello Sport: "The player has never turned down an offer from Arsenal.

"He wants to remain at Inter and if the coach (Gian Piero) Gasperini wants him, he will continue to wear the Nerazzurri colours."
