Emre was one of Turkey's most impressive players as they finished third in the World Cup, and has always been regarded as the gem of his generation in his native land.
However, he has scarcely been given the chance to shine at Inter since arriving at the club from Galatasaray.
Much of the summer's speculation has revolved around Inter's player plus cash bids for Alessandro Nesta, and Emre has often been one of those rumoured to have been offered as part exchange.
It is now being speculated that Inter have decided that Emre is not someone that is crucial to their plans, and Arsenal are believed to be one of the clubs they may offer the player to.
The London club will face competition from Spanish club Valencia should they bid for the player, and it is likely that several other European big guns will also come forward.
