Former Arsenal and Swiss national team Philippe Senderos defender has advised Inter that they would be making a great signing if they are to sign countryman Granit Xhaka in the upcoming Summer transfer window.

Inter drew links to the former Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder near the end of last year and at the start of this year and in an Instagram Live chat with Italian transfer market expert Nicolo Schira, Senderos was full of praise for his compatriot.

“He is a great player and very important for the Swiss national team and Arsenal. Inter? I have heard the rumours and if they were to sign him they would be making a great purchase but I don’t know if he wants to leave Arsenal,” Senderos explained.

27-year-old Xhaka has been with the north London based club since the Summer of 2016 and has a contract with the Gunners through to the end of the 2022/23 season.

Xhaka, who is primarily a defensive midfielder but also capable of playing as a central midfielder, has made 29 appearances across all competitions this term. In just shy of 2500 minutes on the field, the FC Basel academy graduate has provided a single assist for his teammates.
