Thiago Motta's agent insists the Italy midfielder wants to stay at Inter Milan next season and has not turned down a move to Arsenal.

Reports in Italy have linked the 28-year-old with a move away from the San Siro this summer, with the Gunners among the clubs reportedly interested in his services.

However, his agent Daniele Canovi told Gazzetta dello Sport: "The player has never turned down an offer from Arsenal.

"He wants to remain at Inter and if the coach (Gian Piero) Gasperini wants him, he will continue to wear the Nerazzurri colours."

Motta joined Inter in summer 2009 from Genoa and played a key role in the club winning a Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League treble in his first season.

He scored four goals in 19 appearances in Serie A last term.
