Inter Milan will consider offers for striker Marko Arnautovic during the summer transfer window.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews.

Tomorrow, Arnautovic could make his return to the pitch for Inter.

The Austrian international has been on the sidelines for the last month or so. The reason is a thigh injury that he had picked up in a Serie A match against Bologna last month.

That match came against the team that Arnautovic joined Inter from last summer.

The 34-year-old is still in his first season back at the Nerazzurri – having also had a loan spell with the club during the 2009-10 campaign.

But it’s not altogether certain that this second spell will last longer than twelve months for Arnautovic.

Inter To Listen To Offers For Marko Arnautovic This Summer

According to Tuttosport, Inter would be in no real rush to sell Arnautovic.

The Nerazzurri could keep the veteran former West Ham United and Stoke City striker in the squad as a “fifth striker.”

Inter’s plan, the newspaper explains, is to have greater depth in attack next season, with five senior forwards available.

Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram will certainly be among these. As will Mehdi Taremi, who is set to arrive on a free transfer from Porto.

Then, Inter want to make one more big attacking signing – Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson is their top target in this respect.

But beyond that, Arnautovic would still be able to provide a veteran option to bolster the depth chart as Inter fight on many fronts over next season.

The Austrian’s physicality, holdup play, and experience remain valuable on the pitch for Inter.

However, Tuttosport report, this does not mean that the Nerazzurri won’t consider offers for Arnautovic.

The crucial factor for Inter would be to avoid a capital loss on the former Bologna striker.

Therefore, around 5 million would be necessary.

Should an offer of that size arrive for Arnautovic, Inter would certainly be willing to sit at the table, reports Tuttosport.
