Granit Xhaka: Arsenal bound?

Despite interest from Liverpool, Arsenal have reportedly already made an offer for Xhaka and according to reports the signing of the Swiss midfielder will start a summer spending spree.

Arsenal fans have urged the club to splash the cash having failed to keep up with surprise Premier League champions Leicester City.

A “Like” from Xhaka on Instagram

On Thursday evening, Granit Xhaka got tongues wagging on Instagram, as he liked a picture posted by Mohamed Elneny together with Mesut Ozil.

The two current Arsenal midfielders were at an Arsenal charity ball dinner.

Whilst Xhaka did not play with Mohamed Elneny at Basel, their former club, speculation is rife that their paths have crossed. Xhaka’s brother would have played with Elneny for the Swiss champions.
