Gokhan Inler Said No to Arsenal’s Late Bid Before Transfer Window Closed

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger tried his best to bolster the squad with a late move on Monday, the closing day of the Summer transfer window. Following the departures of regular midfielders like Mathieu Flamini, Alexander Hleb and Gilberto Silva over the Summer, Arsenal does not have many options left in the midfield. So, Wenger was searching for a new midfielder to land at Emirates stadium before the transfer window closed. However, all his last attempts to bring a new man failed and Arsenal now has to contend with the void created by the Summer selling.

Wenger made a second bid to recruit Gokhan Inler from Italian club Udinese, but the Swiss midfielder once again turned down the offer to join Arsenal. Inler confirmed it earlier that he would be staying at Udinese at least another season. The 24-year-old midfielder joined Udinese from FC Zurich last season and spent a very successful debut season with the club. Inler thinks it will be little early to go to premier league and he wants to spend another great season with Udinese.

Well, Arsene Wenger also tried to sign Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso and Real Madrid’s German defender Christoph Metzelder, but the bids did not materialize. However, it is believed that Arsene Wenger might make another move for Metzelder in January transfer window.
