Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has emerged as a possible summer transfer target for Inter Milan.
According to Corriere dello Sport, the Nerazzurri are thinking about swooping for the Switzerland international as an alternative to Ivan Rakitic and Toni Kroos.
Xhaka has had a good season for the Gunners and looks much improved compared to his first couple of campaigns.
He is not yet a crucial first-team player under Emery, but he has made 32 appearances across all competitions and is clearly valued by the Spaniard.
Xhaka is currently sidelined with a groin injury, which has caused him to miss the last two Premier League games and the Europa League quarter-final first leg with Napoli.
He is not expected to be out for much longer, and many Arsenal fans will be pleased about his return when it comes.
Arsenal fans react
Quite a few Arsenal fans were not so happy to read about Inter Milan targeting their vastly improved midfielder
The fans’ current position on Xhaka is certainly a far cry away from last season.
Nope. Not a chance.

He ain’t going nowhere. They can have elneny if they want.

They got the wrong memo. It’s Elneny on sale not Xhaka.

We should be keeping players like him and adding more players to the squad.

We are not selling

Most arsenal fans wint admit this as they only see his errors ( not always his fault) but the way he dictates our midfield hes going nowhere

Better than Pirlo. He’s unlikely to be sold.

Why would Arsenal consider selling Xhaka to Inter? Especially considering we are already losing Ramsey and Xhaka’s the most key player in the system Emery opted for this season.
