After scoring twice in the Nerazzurri's 3-1 triumph over Palermo in May's Coppa Italia, the Cameroon international claimed that he would not leave the club. But the two-time treble-winning forward appears to be having second thoughts as he considers a move to England.

"I am currently considering my options," he told Italian newspaper Il Corriere dello Sport. "I have one month to decide as to whether I want to stay put or choose to move to the Premier League."

"I am now 30-years-old and it is very important for me to think about my future before I sign what could be my last contract. I have already shown that I have what it takes to play in Italy and I now have the idea of proving myself in England."

Eto'o joined Inter from Barcelona when he part of a £40 million swap deal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the summer of 2009. He currently has three years remaining on his contract with Serie A's runners-up, but will surely garner interest from several of the Premier League's top sides following his comments.
