The 22-year-old has made 48 appearances for the Nerazzurri since signing from Nigerian lower division club NEPA Lagos in the summer of 2010.

His 2012/13 season was badly disrupted by injury though, restricting him to just three appearances and forcing him to miss the Africa Cup of Nations in January.

Despite his injury problems Premier League duo Newcastle and Sunderland have been linked with a summer swoop in recent weeks.

His agent, Renzo Contratto, has confirmed clubs in England have enquired about the player, who is now fit again, but insists that his future depends on Inter.

"I can say that Joel is a player liked in the Premier League," he told FC Inter News. "The guy had a difficult season but now is fine.

"He will leave for the Inter pre-season and then we'll see what the club wants to do.

"Obi is an Inter player and has a contract until 2017 but from now to the market's end, no one can predict what will happen".
