Xhaka’s Instagram activity sends Arsenal Twitter wild
Done Deal*: Arsenal fans on social media were getting a little ahead of themselves on Friday morning due to Granit Xhaka’s latest Instagram activity.
The Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder ‘liked’ a photo on Instagram of a Gooner wearing a ‘Xhaka 34’ Arsenal shirt.
There was plenty of excitement on Arsenal Twitter despite the fact that Frenchman Francis Coquelin currently wears the number 34 shirt at the Emirates.
A journalist and friend of Granit Xhaka this morning claimed the Swiss midfielder was on his way to London to sign today but reports came out of Germany yesterday suggesting Arsenal had massively underbid for the 23-year-old Gladbach star.
*Not actually a done deal.
We at 101 Great Goals are just looking forward to the video of this Arsenal fan burning his Xhaka shirt after the Gladbach midfielder signs for Spurs instead.
Arsenal’s midfield revamp
Arsenal long-time servants Mathieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky and captain Mikel Arteta are all to leave the club this summer, paving the way for the signing of at least two new midfielders.
Granit Xhaka is widely expected to join whilst Leicester City star N’Golo Kante has also been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates.
Having finished 2nd ahead of Spurs, there is plenty of optimism amongst the Arsenal support right now despite the split opinions over Arsene Wenger.
