€50m-rated Arsenal injured midfielder could skip the UEL game
London club midfielder Granit Xhaka has a minor injury and he could skip the Uefa Europa League game with BATE. This is bad news for Arsenal as Lucas Torreira also injured and Mohamed Elneny has to back-up them, but Egypt international is in bad form. Swiss footballer has an impressive campaign and proved his greatness one more time. He was linked with Roma during the summer transfer window but preferred to remain in England and help the Gunners to win many titles. Matto Guendouzi too young and it will be difficult for him to play excellently such an important match. Mesut Ozil has a conflict with Emery and he also won’t be able to play this game.
So the Spanish manager has big problems in the squad. Xhaka joined Arsenal from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2016 with a €45m deal. He is one of the best midfielders in Premier League and unchanged figure for the club. In this season, Granit already played 25 matches, scored 3 goals and made one assist in all competition. This is an amazing result and he can improve his consequences during this campaign.
Switzerland international is contracted with the English club until 2023 and his release clause is nearly €50m. His price could increase during this season and become much more. The 26-year-old midfielder is a regular member of the national team and also helped them to reach the playoffs in the 2018 Mundial but after losing 1-0 against Sweden they kicked out from the tournament. Gunners won the last match against Huddersfield Town 2-1 and they are in a sixth place in Premier League table.
