Striker Marko Arnautovic has poured cold water on rumours that he could be leaving Inter Milan this summer.

Speaking to Austrian outlet Sport Orf, via FCInterNews, the 35-year-old made clear that despite the rumour mill, he is not aware of any prospective move away from the Nerazzurri.

At the moment, Arnautovic is under contract with Inter until the end of next June.

The Austrian signed a two-year deal with the Nerazzurri when he joined from Bologna last summer.

Therefore, it is not as though Arnautovic will be departing at the end of his deal this summer. He will still be under contract with Inter.

However, there have been some recent rumours that Arnautovic could leave one season before the end of his contract.

The arrival of Mehdi Taremi as another striker with a similar profile to the former West Ham United and Bologna veteran could mean less playing time next season.

And there have been links to the Saudi Pro League for Arnautovic.

But as far as the player himself is concerned, these are nothing more than rumours and chatter.

Marko Arnautovic Quashes Rumours Of Inter Milan Departure

Arnautovic said of his future that “I’m totally calm.”

“Journalists like to talk a lot,” he continued. “We know that. Particularly in Italy.”

“I’m still under contract with Inter,” Arnautovic said. “I’m completely satisfied, and now we’re Serie A champions.”

The 35-year-old commented that “Nobody has said anything to me, or to my brother [Danijel, who is also the striker’s agent].”

“So I’m preparing for the Euros. Then, I’ll have a holiday and then start to prepare for next season with Inter.”

Meanwhile, Arnautovic also opened up about being more of a backup striker at Inter this season.

“It’s difficult not to play,” the Austrian admitted. “I’m not used to it.”

“I’ve always been a starter,” Arnautovic.

“But I knew that things would be harder at Inter. Particularly because Lautaro and Thuram had exceptional seasons.”

“I’m proud of them,” Arnautovic said of his teammates.

“The two injuries that I suffered during the season were bitter for me,” he continued. “But I think I’m back to 100% now.”
