They say the former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager’s interest in the former Borussia Mönchengladbach captain never waned.

Finally, Arsenal transfer target Lautaro Martinez will stay at Inter Milan beyond next summer.

That’s according to Lautaro’s agent Alejando Camano, who claims his client as well as his family are so happy at Inter that there’s ‘no possibility’ of him leaving.

Camano told Calciomercato: “He stays at Inter. Lautaro has a five-year contract with Inter, he feels like an Interista.

“Inter are the team in his heart. He feels like an extra fan on the pitch.

“His family is also very happy at Milan. I can say with certainty: there is no possibility that Lautaro will leave Inter. He is so keen to win with this club”
