Swiss Star to Arrive?

 

There are many reports stating that Arsenal have made a £5M bid for Udinese and Swiss player Gokhan Inler.  Inler, if Turkish background has represented Switzerland.  The Swiss midfielder has a £5M buy-out clause and it is believed that both Arsenal and Newcastle have made a bid for the player.

The Switzerland international has been in stunning form since moving to Italy from FC Zurich last summer and his performance at Euro 2008 put a number of European clubs on high alert.  Gokhan is under contract to Udinese until 2010, but contract are worthless these days if they either contain a buy-out clause or if the player wishes to leave.

Inler will not be the experienced player Wenger has spoken about, but will be a valuable addition to the squad, Wenger might use this opportunity to make a further enquiry about Udinese’s Columbian centre-back Zapattta.

What remains to be seen now is where does Gokhan fancy playing next season, Champions League football at Arsenal or middle of the table football with Newcaslte United.
