€40m-rated midfielder wants to remain at Arsenal despite several offers
Gunners star Granit Xhaka has dropped a hint over his future despite some negotiations that he could be on his way out of the London club. It’s not been an easy few weeks for Switzerland international, who was seen reacting badly towards the home crowd at Arsenal as he was subbed off by coach Unai Emery with Crystal Palace.
Granit goaded the home support and has not played for the London club since, with the Spanish tactician recently quoted by the Sun as suggesting he was ruling himself out of the Gunners. “He said to me he is not yet available and I don’t know if he’s going to play again,” Emery said.
This also comes as Xhaka has been linked with a move to Newcastle United, which makes sense as he’s arguably never really looked good enough for a club of Gunners level anyway. This fall-out surely makes an exit more likely, but the 27-year-old midfielder has seemed to calm that speculation in an interview with Blick.
Swiss midfielder discusses several things in the interview. It doesn’t always sound too positive about his experience with Gunners supporters, but at the same time, he is quoted as suggesting he is focused on getting back on with things in Arsenal.
He said: “You could say things have been a bit frantic. Last week, in particular, was an exceptionally emotional experience for me. “But I’m doing very well again, I’ve trained well this week and am looking forward to my next assignments. In the club and of course on the national team.”
