Inter join Arsenal in race to sign Southampton midfielder.
Arsenal transfer target Morgan Schneiderlin has drawn the interest of Italian giants Inter Milan, with both teams set to make an offer for the Southampton star.
Gazetta dello sport have reported that Inter are considering a bid for the 23-year old in the coming months, as they look to bolster a side that missed out on European football next season.
The Gunners are set to offer £10m for the talented Frenchman, with the north London side on the lookout for a defensive midfielder, having not had an orthodox holding player since the days of Mathieu Flamini and Gilberto Silva.
Schneiderlin scored five times for the Saints last year, but perhaps more importantly has made an average of 4.1 tackles and 3.9 interceptions per Premier League game to offer his defence great protection.
Arsene Wenger will likely hope that the step up in talent around him will be enough to persuade the 23 year-old to move to the Emirates.
Inter Milan are set to offer a large wage package in order to attract the highly-touted youngster, and Arsenal may find themselves sucked into a bidding war unless they are able to resolve a deal quickly.
