Arsenal face losing key £30m-rated midfielder this summer

Inter Milan want to land Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, who had yet another mixed campaign in North London.

The enigmatic Switzerland international has turned in some metronomic performances in the middle of the park, but inconsistency and ill-discipline have raised concerns once again over his reliability.

It seems the chance to cash in on the former Borussia Monchengladbach star in the summer, which is now open, could arise, though, with Serie A giants noted as potential suitors.

Inter Milan have directed their attention towards the Premier League as they look to recruit players for the 2019/20 season, with Granit Xhaka among their potential targets.

The Italian side are stocked with midfield options but evidently, regard the Arsenal man as an upgrade on what they currently have.

Despite last summer’s acquisitions of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi Arsenal lack the quality in the depth of their midfield.

While the duo perhaps have higher ceilings than their midfield partner, Granit Xhaka remains one of the team’s most accomplished technical players, and could yet have a role to play next year.

The Gunners will have a limited budget in the transfer window, and although selling the midfielder would likely add to their funds significantly, it is uncertain whether or not they would be able to upgrade upon the player.

Due to this, keeping the current group of players together may be wise for Unai Emery, who does hold the Switzerland international in high esteem.
