Former Inter loan flop delighted with Milan interest…
Werder Bremen winger Marko Arnautovic has said he was honored to have been linked with Milan, but played down reports linking him to the Serie A side.
The 23-year-old was linked with a €10 million move to Milan by German football weekly Sport Bild. But speaking to Sky on Thursday, the Austria international said he had not so far been approached by the club.
“Of course, Milan being interested in me is a great honor,” he added. “But I have only heard about it through the media. I feel great here.”
Arnautovic joined Bremen from Twente Enschede in 2010, having spent 2009-10 on a loan at Inter but making only three appearances under then manager Jose Mourinho. After handing him his debut against Chievo in January 2010, current Real Madrid boss claimed Arnautovic had “the character of a child”.
But this season has seen Arnautovic, under contract with Bremen until 2014, arrive as a force and he has scored five goals in 16 games, sparking speculation of a transfer to Bundesliga club Wolfsburg.
