Leaked Photos Show Xhaka In Arsenal Shirt
Switzerland international midfielder Granit Xhaka is set to have a medical at Arsenal today after the Gunners agreed a €45million (£35million) fee with Borussia Monchengladbach.
Xhaka, 23, was reported on Friday to be set to travel to London for talks over personal terms. Leaked photos show he has also been photographed in an Arsenal kit. That suggests the discussions over wages were brief and successful.

Arsenal initially offered only €25million (£19million) for Xhaka and the news of a €45million deal – as reported by the German newspaper Bild suggests they moved quickly to prevent any other side from snapping him up.
The Gunners sent scouts to watch him on over 30 occasions this season.
Xhaka had expressed a desire for the deal to be done before the Euro 2016 finals begin in less than three weeks’ time.
