Transfer news: Gokhan Inler refuses to be drawn on Arsenal speculation
Napoli midfielder plays down transfer talk
Thursday 19 December 2013
Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler has refused to be drawn on speculation linking him with a January transfer to Arsenal.
The Swiss midfielder, who has helped his team up to third place in the Serie A table this season, is reportedly admired by Arsene Wenger .
The Gunners may well be in the market for a central midfielder of his type, with their current options perhaps lacking a bit of strength.
However Inler moved to calm rumours that he might be on his way out of the Italian club.
“The transfer market? You will have to ask my agent, I do not pay attention to these things,” Inler told TMW. “I’m completely focused on my duties as a player.”
The 29-year-old has made 15 league appearances for Napoli this season, scoring one goal and creating one assist.
