Inter Milan are preparing a swap offer for Arsenal midfield dynamo Aaron Ramsey. Corriere dello Sport says Inter Milan are ready to test Arsenal's resolve with a £17.5 million bid for Ramsey.

Inter could also offer Ricardo Alvarez as a makeweight in a bid to tempt Arsenal to sell Ramsey, aged 20.

The Argentinian playmaker was a target for Arsene Wenger before he opted to join Inter in a £10.25m deal during the summer.

But Alvarez has struggled to settle in Italy and he has only appeared three times for the Nerazzurri this season.
