Arsenal accuse Inter

Wenger angered by Hleb's Italian meeting with agent

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to report Internazionale to Uefa for tapping up midfielder Alexander Hleb.

The Belarus international has impressed for Arsenal this season and he is believed to have caught the eye of a number of clubs across Europe.

Hleb left Arsenal's hotel with his agent, Claudio Vigorelli, the night before their Champions League last 16 second-leg tie with Milan on 4th March and it was rumoured he travelled to Inter's offices in the city.

Vigorelli is an associate of fellow agent Vicenzo Morabito, who has dealt with a number or English clubs in the past.

And Morabito has confirmed that Hleb - who has two years left on his contract at Emirates Stadium - and Vigorelli left Arsenal's Melia Felix hotel and admits Wenger has been angered by the incident, but insists there was no contact with Inter.

"It's true that Hleb saw Vigorelli and they went out from the Melia Felix but it's not true that they went to talk to Inter," Morabito told The Guardian.

"They went for an ice-cream. We are sorry that Mr Wenger took it badly and complained because we have a good relationship with him."
