The pick of today's football transfer rumours from Inter Milan. The San Siro club will be looking to reclaim their Serie A title next season and will be looking to spend big to achieve their goal. The best transfer rumours from the 15<sup>th July claim that Inter Milan is ready to make a bid for Tottenham sensation Gareth Bale. There is also speculation that Inter Milan is ready to offer Arsenal £20m for Samir Nasri. There is also news on possible departures as Inter Milan reject rumours that Wesley Sneijder will join Manchester United as well as Inter's fight to keep Samuel Eto'o.

Kicking off today's transfer rumours, reports in Italy claim that both AC Milan and Inter Milan are keeping their options open with a view to making an offer for Tottenham winger Gareth Bale. The flying Welshman was a revelation for Tottenham last season, especially in the UEFA Champions League and both Milan clubs are ready to test Tottenham's resolve. Gareth Bale was arguably the best player in last seasons UEFA Champions League and was sensational against Inter Milan; scoring a sensational hat-trick in the San Siro as well as playing a staring role in the London clubs 3-1 victory at White Hart Lane.

Gareth Bale has received plaudits from across Europe with the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Real Madrid all rumoured to be ready to make a bid for the player. Bale has said that if Tottenham sell Luka Modric this summer he will seriously consider his future at White Hart Lane. It is thought that Inter Milan is ready to offer Tottenham around £40m for the winger, an amount that has to be seriously considered by Harry Redknapp and the Tottenham board.

The agent of Samir Nasri has admitted that Italian clubs are interested in the midfielder. Nasri is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates and the Arsenal board are keen for the Frenchman to sign a new deal but know they can't allow the possibility of Nasri leaving for nothing next season.

Inter Milan are said to be fully aware of the situation and are willing to offer Wenger an alternative to selling to a Premier League rival. Inter will offer Arsenal around £20m for the player and with Manchester United pulling out of any deal for the player Inter Milan have a clear path to push for Nasri's signature.

In news surrounding departures from the San Siro, the Manchester Evening News claims that Manchester United chief executive David Gill is still fighting to keep alive Manchester United's £35m offer for Wesley Sneijder. There have been conflicting reports over the past two days as to whether Inter Milan and Manchester United have agreed a deal for the player with Sir Alex Ferguson pouring cold water on any possible transfer. He said: "The situation is that there is no real interest in Wesley Sneijder at this moment in time for a lot of reasons," he said. "There is nothing I can tell you about it. I have not really been involved in it since I came across here."

Although Sneijder comes in above Ferguson's self-imposed policy of not signing players over the age of 26, he believes the Holland international would thrive at United. Inter Milan have rejected any rumours that the Dutchman could leave the San Siro this summer.

Finally, it seems as though Samuel Eto'o is looking for a move away from the San Siro this summer. Manchester City has been told that only a 'huge bid' will prize the Cameroon striker away from the San Siro but reports claim that Manchester City are winterested. Roberto Mancini has been linked with a move for the 30 year old and the striker has admitted he would be interested in a move to the Premier League. Manchester City are said to be planning a £25m offer for Eto'o to replace Carlos Tevez at Eastland's next season.

Although Eto'o's agent, Claudio Vigorelli, insists the Cameroon striker is happy in Italy, he hinted a blockbuster offer could tempt Inter to sell. Vigorelli said: 'At the moment Inter and Eto'o are happy with each other. However, there's always a chance that Inter receive a big money offer for Samuel.'
