Arsenal to make bid for Napoli midfielder

Inler - NapoliArsenal are expected to make a bid for Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler in hopes of landing his services during the January transfer window.

The 29-year-old has played a crucial part in the Partenopei squad since joining them from Udinese for a fee of €13 million in 2011 and now it seems that Arsene Wenger is looking to bring his skills over to England.

According to French source Les Transferts, The Gunners could be preparing to offer the Swiss international around €15 million deal come this winter.

However, the Premier League leaders aren’t the only ones looking to land the talented midfielder, as Galatasaray coach Roberto Mancini is also reportedly keen on signing the player in January.

Gokhan Inler has scored nine goals in a total of 100 appearances in all competitions for Napoli during his two years at the club thus far.

The Azzurri are currently in second place on the Serie A table with only one defeat in their first nine matches of the season and are preparing to face Fiorentina next on October 30.
