Swiss professional footballer Granit Xhaka who is currently playing for Arsenal has reportedly turned down a mega million January 2021 move to Italian giants Inter Milan.

Inter Milan chiefs are said to be interested in the 28-year-old midfielder with them even ready to offer the Gunners Christian Eriksen in a swap deal, but Xhaka is not ready to leave England.

Antonio Conte who is in charge of the San Siro team is planning to bolster his squad when the January 2021 transfer window opens and he is now turning attention to N'Golo Kante of Chelsea.

Before turning his face to N'Golo Kante, Antonio Conte was said to have spoken with Xhaka's representatives, but his efforts to convince the player were futile.

Granit Xhaka has become a core member of Mikel Arteta's Arsenal side playing in seven of the Gunners' nine Premier League games so far this season.

However, signing N'Golo Kante from Chelsea will be hard for Inter Milan considering his superb performances since the France international started playing for the Blues.

Four years ago, Granit Xhaka joined Arsenal from Borussia Monchengladbach where he played 108 games scoring six goals before moving to the Emirates.

Since joining Arsenal, he has played 137 games so far scoring eight goals for the Premier League giants.
