Swiss Midfielder Wants Deal Done Soon
Arsenal transfer target Granit Xhaka has hinted that he could be on his way to the Emirates this summer. The 23-year-old midfielder, who plays for Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga, was initially linked with Arsenal in November of last year but is reported to be at the top of Arsene Wenger’s summer wishlist.
The German club admitted on Tuesday that they have received a bid from an un-named club. But speaking in an interview with the Swiss television station SRF, Xhaka’s comments suggest the bid is from Arsenal and that he is looking forward to a move to the Emirates.
“The Premier League is not my goal, but a childhood dream that will perhaps go once fulfilled,” he said.
“Whether there have been talks or not only the clubs Gladbach and Arsenal know that, but as of now I am still a Gladbach player. That might change in the next few weeks or it might not change.
“There will definitely be a decision before the European Championship.”
