Inter in for youngster Shaqiri

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter have contacted Swiss club FC Basel about signing highly-rated teenager Xherdan Shaqiri.
Inter, who have publicly announced that they want to reinforce their under-performing squad in the January transfer window, are supposedly leading the chase for Shaqiri, who has been tipped for a big future.
Shaqiri, 19, is a midfield playmaker in a similar mould to Inter’s Wesley Sneijder. Although he was born in Yugoslavia to Albanian parents, Shaqiri was raised in Switzerland and has come through the youth ranks with Basel. He has already represented Switzerland seven times, including during last summer’s World Cup, which alerted some of Europe’s big clubs to his potential. Inter could be set to offer Basel €6 million for the player. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
