Arsenal new signing Granix Xhaka has been talking up the cause for his move to the Emirates Stadium.
Xhaka joined Arsenal from Borrussia Monchengladbach in a 35million Pounds deal before the start of the already-concluded European Championship and he is expected to be a mainstay in the team.
The need to bolster Arsenal midfield became apparent following the departure of Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky.
The 23-year-old revealed that he was convinced to join Arsenal by the Gunners former starlet starlet Havard Nordtveit.
“Of course I spoke with him [Havard Nordtveit] about Arsenal and he told me it’s a big club, a family club and it’s very important for me to come here.” he said
After making his debut in the red and white against the MLS All-star team on Thursday, the Swiss international could not hide his delight.
“This club fits to me and I fit to it. Arsenal play attractive football and I enjoy that. I think you could see today that this team has a lot of quality and we’ll give our all to show that on the pitch.” Xhaka added
The 23-year-old currently earns 120k Pounds per week.
