Udinese's Inler excited by Arsenal, Liverpool interest

Udinese midfielder Gokhan Inler has welcomed interest from Liverpool and Arsenal. The Daily Star says Anfield boss Rafa Benitez has earmarked the Udinese midfielder as a replacement if he loses either Real Madrid target Xabi Alonso or Javier Mascherano, who is wanted by Barcelona.

And rival manager Arsene Wenger, who has long been on the trail of the 25-year-old, wants him at the Emirates.

Udinese rate Inler at £15m, but will accept a compromise deal - with the player keen to quit the modest Serie A club.

Inler said: "They play very good football in England as well as in Serie A."
