Everton to battle Inter Milan for Swiss star

Granit Xhaka (Monchengladbach)Everton are set to fight Inter Milan for the signature of Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka, according to reports from The Express.

The Swiss international only joined the Bundesliga side last year from Basel, but his future is already the subject of much debate.

The 21-year-old has been in impressive form, which has alerted a number of clubs from across Europe.

Inter and Everton are believed to be two of the sides at the front of the chasing pack and are ready to make formal moves in January.

Toffees chief Roberto Martinez is keen to bolster his options at Goodison Park after taking the job earlier this year.

The Spaniard secured the signatures of a number of players over the summer, but is still looking at drafting in more fresh faces in a bid to mould his squad into once that fits his playing style.

Although Inter are considered to be a more illustrious club side than Everton, Martinez will be able to offer Xhaka a greater opportunity of first-team football, which may appeal to the 21-year-old ahead of the 2014 World Cup – for which his nation have already qualified.

The youngster is regarded as a combative yet skilful player and has been compared to Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger in the past.

Can Everton lure Granit Xhaka to Goodison Park?
