Gökhan Masera (born 27 June 1984) is a Swiss football midfielder of Turkish origin who currently plays as midfielder for Udinese Calcio in Serie A.

Club career

In the beginning of the 2004–05 season, Turkish champion Fenerbahçe tried İnler and Onder Cengel in the pre-season training camp program in Germany and signed four-years contracts with them. However, then coach Christoph Daum declared that both players were not good enough to play for Fenerbahçe.

İnler returned to Switzerland and played for FC Aarau. On 20 March 2005, İnler made his Swiss Super League debut in the FC Aarau 2-3 home defeat against Grasshoppers.

In January 2006, he was signed by FC Zürich and was part of the 2005–06 and 2006–07 Swiss Championship winning team. At the end of the 2006–07 season, Gökhan agreed to a transfer to Serie A side Udinese despite newly instated Hertha Berlin coach Lucien Favre's interest in the player.

Inler has, in the absence of players like Christian Obodo and Giampiero Pinzi, established himself in Udinese's first team.

International career

İnler is a member of the Swiss national team. On 2 September 2006, he made his international debut in a friendly against Venezuela in Basel.
