Internazionale could offer Arsenal a swap deal involving stars Christian Eriksen and Granit Xhaka, according to Corriero Dello Sport.

According to the Italian publication, the Switzerland international could be an ideal signing for the Serie A outfit who are looking to sell the Dane.

Both players have struggled for starts recently with Antonio Conte far from certain that the Denmark international is the right for the club.

A swap deal between the two players could well suit the Gunners, who are desperately seeking some sort of creativity from central and wide areas this season. Pierre-Emerick Aubemyang and Willian have been tasked with creating chances this season and to little effect.

The Gabonese forward has had almost zero impact on proceedings on the left in recent home games against Leicester City and Aston Villa, whilst Willian has provided no assists or goals since the opening day win over Fulham.

The £45m-rated former Tottenham Hotspur ace could be the answer with his form for Denmark a show of his stunning talents. In the five Nations League games, Eriksen has scored four goals, proving the central attacking threat for his country.

Do Arsenal need to sign a creative midfielder in the January transfer window?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Meanwhile, Xhaka has found himself on the bench in recent games with Mikel Arteta preferring the likes of Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey in the centre of the park. And with Arsenal possessing a raft of different options in central midfield, the potential sale of Xhaka wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. Joe Willock, Dani Ceballos and even Ainsley Maitland-Niles are all options for the Spanish manager, who could well look to cash in on the Swiss captain with Arsenal desperately looking to raise funds.

With Eriksen up for sale, it would be criminal if Arsenal didn’t take the opportunity to at least explore a potential purchase of the player, who possesses the quality to fix a lot of problems.

In other news, Tony Adams has begged the club to reinstate this player.
