Inter Milan are chasing Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky.

The Italian champions are long-term admirers of the Arsenal midfielder and believe they can test Arsene Wenger's resolve to hang on to a player who has suffered continual injury problems during his 18 months at Emirates Stadium.

Inter enquired about Rosicky's availability during the summer when they were touting Brazilian striker Adriano to various Premier League clubs, says the Daily Mail.

The Serie A leaders wanted Adriano to go out on loan to Arsenal and exchange him for Rosicky, who they have targeted as an eventual replacement for Luis Figo.

That offer was rejected but the Italians hope Arsene Wenger could be persuaded by another bid - of £10 million - for a player who has been hampered by hamstring, groin, thigh and ankle injuries during his spell in London.
