Inter has officially announced the signing of striker Marko Arnautovic, from Bologna. They’re starting with a loan deal, but if certain conditions are met, they’ll buy him permanently.

According to recent reports, Inter will pay Bologna around €10 million for Arnautovic. He’s 34 years old and has played for Inter before, back when Jose Mourinho was the coach in 2009-10.

After that, Arnautovic played for other teams like Werder Bremen, Stoke, West Ham, Shanghai SIPG, and recently for Bologna.

A statement on Inter’s club website described Arnautovic as: “physically strong, a practically ambidextrous player with strong technical attributes. 

“Marko is a complete attacker, who has become an icon of the Austria national team with his 108 caps,” the statement continued.

“Now, he returns to the Nerazzurri with the same level of desire as he had when he first arrived in 2009.”

During his time with Bologna, Arnautovic scored 24 goals in the league from 54 games. In the most recent Serie A season, he scored 10 goals in 21 games.

This is Inter’s second new striker this summer. They also got Marcus Thuram on a free transfer earlier. They said goodbye to Edin Dzeko and Romelu Lukaku at the end of the last season.
