There’s a lot of stories floating around these days about Granit Xhaka, and it’s easy to see why.
The player appears to be on his way out from Arsenal after his fallout with fans during the draw with Crystal Palace, and there’s a big question mark about where he could end up next.
We’ve already covered an interview in Italy with a Swiss journalist who pointed everyone in the direction of Milan, while Newcastle and Borussia Dortmund were also in the mix.
Another club brought up in that chat were Inter, but it was made clear they weren’t anywhere near as keen on Xhaka as their local rivals, and that’s now been backed up by Gazzetta dello Sport.
According to the Italian newspaper, the Arsenal midfielder’s agents ‘put out some feelers’ towards Inter about moving their client there, but, for the time being, they have been ‘unsuccessful’.
This shows how things have changed at Inter in recent times, since it’s pointed out Xhaka was approached by the Serie A club in the summer, but it appears Antonio Conte has changed his mind, preferring a move for the likes of Udinese’s duo Rodrigo De Paul or Rolando Mandragora these days instead.
