Arsenal target Granit Xhaka of Borussia Monchengladbach has finally spoken on his reported move to Arsenal, admitting there is a chance of he joining Arsenal before the start of the European Championship in 23 days time.
The former FC Basel star has constantly been linked with a move to Arsenal in the last few weeks with reports claiming Wenger met with the player’s father who happens to also be his agent in January. On Tuesday, Monchengladbach officially confirmed they have recieved a 43 million bid for the player from an unnamed club.
Xhaka himself has now confirmed there is a chance he leaves the German club this summer. Claiming he will “absolutely” like to play for Arsenal.
“Absolutely. Whether there are talks or not, the clubs Gladbach and Arsenal know that, but as of now I am still a Gladbach player. It might change in the next weeks or it might not change” Granit Xhaka said
There will definitely be a decision before the European Championship”
With Arsenal also still been linked with the signing of N’Golo Kante, it remains to be seen if Wenger actually want to sign both players or just one of them.
I personally would rather we sign Xhaka than Kante. Kante might have been one of the best players in the outgone Premier league season but he is certainly not a player Arsenal needs. His style of play and that of Arsenal are on a paralell line couple with the fact that we have many players who can play in the same role as Kante who is more a box to box midfielder than a defensive midfielder.
