Inter are searching for a replacement for Douglas Maicon after his move to Manchester City and rumours persist that Arias could be on his way to Italy in the January transfer window in a two million Euros transfer.
“We are in direct contact with Inter and I know full well they are continuing to monitor Santiago Arias,” said his agent Marcelo Ferreyra.
“I won’t say there is an official proposal, nor negotiations in place. To say they want to buy him right now is false too.
“At this moment Inter are observing Arias, that is all. As things stand, there are no actual negotiations for a move.
“Anything can happen in football and Inter are keeping an eye on the lad.”
