Gokhan Inler, the Udinese Calcio midfielder has been the subject of much interest from Newcastle United this summer.
Gokhan Inler – still available
In fact both Newcastle and Arsenal have been linked with the Swiss midfielder, and it even looked a couple of weeks ago that he would be moving to London to join Arsenal.
But it turns out that Inler is still available and in fact David Moyes of Everton is attempting to make the Swiss International his first signing.
Everton had hoped to capture Tiago but that loan deal fell through, when it became apparent that Tiago did not want to return to England.
He played for Chelsea for one year under Jose Mourinho, but he couldn’t settle in England.
Inler’s agent Dino Lambertini had claimed he was planning to meet Arsenal representatives to discuss a £10M move to North London, but that now seems not accurate.
Everton are looking for a replacement for Lee Carsley, who joined Birmingham this summer.
All we are certain of with this news is that Inler is still available, and that has to be good news for Newcastle, if indeed the club is interested in him.
We would be very happy to see the player move to Tyneside, as we believe he could strengthen our squad.
We’ll have to wait to see what happens, but there’s only 8 days left in the summer transfer window.
