Samuel Eto'o considering Premier League switch
Thursday 16 June 2011
Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o has revealed he is mulling over a move to the Barclays Premier League this summer.
The Cameroon star, who has three years remaining on his contract, had said that he wanted to remain at the San Siro after scoring twice in their Coppa Italia triumph over Palermo.
But he told Corriere dello Sport: "I am currently considering my options. I have one month to decide as to whether I want to stay put or choose to move to the Premier League.
"I am now 30 years old and it is very important for me to think about my future before I sign what could be my last contract.
"I have already shown that I have what it takes to play in Italy and I now have the idea of proving myself in England."
The former Barcelona forward had been linked with moves to Chelsea and Arsenal earlier in his career.
