Elkeson’s agent has confirmed that Inter made an initial approach to sign the striker, but are yet to table an offer.
The Guangzhou Evergrande forward has been linked with a summer move to the Nerazzurri after impressing in the Chinese Super League.
Davide Lippi, who is one of the goalscorer’s representatives, told reporters over the weekend that the Brazilian would not be leaving for San Siro.
However, Gustavo Antonio, who also acts on behalf of Elkeson, has revealed that Walter Mazzarri’s men have been in contract.
“There was an approach from Inter,” Antonio told CalcioNews24. “But there was no official offer.
“We are looking forward to more possible talks with Inter though.”
