Arsenal to Sign Udinese Midfielder Gokhan Inler?

Following the disappointing performance at Fulham on Saturday, Arsenal is seriously considering to sign up a midfielder to fill up the void created by the departures of Mathieu Flamini and Gilberto Silva in Summer. Arsene manager Arsene Wenger earlier indicated that he was going to land a midfielder at Emirates Stadium, and now after the defeat to Fulham in which Arsenal midfield looked very weak and fragile, it is obvious that Wenger would definitely go for another purchase in Summer transfer window.

Well, there are three targets for the Gunners boss- Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso, Aston Villa’s Gareth Barry and Udinese's Gokhan Inler. Considering the sale-on value of the three midfielders, Inler is thought to be the most likely signing for Arsenal. Arsenal always maintains low profile in terms of spending in the transfer market, rather the London club always go for young talented and potential players who are very often turned to important assets for the club. So, considering the fact that Arsenal might not spend £18million or more for either Alonso or Barry, Swiss midfielder Gokhan Inler, who is currently playing in Serie A club Udinese, could be the viable option for Arsene Wenger to bolster his midfield.

Udinese midfielder Inler has already played 30 matches for Udinese and has been playing for Switzerland national team since 2006, winning 15 international caps. So, the 24-year-old has some experience with him as well.
