The Schalke forward, who has less than six months left on his contract with the Bundesliga side, has been heavily linked with a move away from Schalke in recent weeks, with Arsenal reportedly keen on luring the 29-year-old to north London.
Liverpool have also been linked with a January swoop for the striker as Brendan Rodgers looks to bolster his attacking options.
But the player’s agent, Arnold Oosterveer, has hinted that the former Real Madrid forward would favour a move to Inter Milan, who are also chasing his signature.
“He would not mind playing in Milan again – especially because Inter would give him the chance to show he is a great player,” said Oosterveer.
Arsenal have been hopeful of snapping up the striker, who has netted 10 goals in 20 outings for Schalke this season, for £5m in January.
