Two days ago, TuttoMercatoWeb reported Inter Milan are weighing up the possibility of signing Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, if Barcelona end up signing Lautaro Martínez.

Le10 Sport have responded to TMW’s claims and state Antonio Conte’s side have not planned any approach for the Gabon international in the winter market.

However, the Nerazzurri appreciates the forward’s profile as they ‘closely followed’ him a few months ago.

It’s explained the possibility of an approach from the Serie A side for the Gunners star has been ruled out in January because it’s still not clear whether or not the 30-year-old is planning to leave the north London club midway through the season.

Even if he does, Inter are unlikely to make an approach for the former Borussia Dortmund man because the cost of the operation to sign Aubameyang will be ‘problematic’ for the San Siro club.

Aubameyang’s current deal at Arsenal expires in 2021 and earlier reports indicated he’s put contract talks on hold as he wants to see whether or not the English side will qualify for next season’s Champions League.
