OFFICIAL: Marko Arnautovic Completes Transfer To Inter

The 20-year-old has completed a one-year loan deal to the Nerazzurri, who have an option to buy him after the loan expires...

The move has been announced on FC Twente's official website, which reports that the Dutch club have successfully completed negotiations with Inter for the transfer of Marko Arnautovic.

The 20-year-old will arrive at San Siro on a one-year loan with the Nerazzurri given an option to buy the Austrian after he has made 10 appearances for the Italian club. The price for a permanent transfer is reported to be around €9m.

Should Inter not make the move permanent for one reason or another, Arnautovic will return to Twente where he will remain under contract for two further seasons, with an option of a one-year extension.

The move was set to be officially announced some time back, but Inter then re-negotiated the deal in light of a stress fracture to Arnautovic's right foot.

Despite the injury, Arnautovic established himself as a quality striker in Holland's Eredivisie last season as he scored 12 goals in 28 games. Since making his debut for Twente on 14 April 2007, he has scored 14 goals in 58 games.

Inter had been criticised from some quarters for a lack of options up front, but now have three new strikers in Arnautovic, Samuel Eto'o and Diego Milito. In addition, Jose Mourinho can call on David Suazo and Mario Balotelli to play in attack, and the coach can now put all of his efforts into signing the elusive trequartista.
