German Media Claim Arsenal Already Have A Massive Done Deal For Summer Window

Consistently linked with a move to Arsenal during the January transfer window, reports today claim that Granit Xhaka’s move to the Emirates is finally a done deal.

Granit Xhaka currently plays his football with Borussia Monchengladbach and The Independent broke a story back in January that Arsenal were weighing up a bid for the 23-year-old.

Although no one was quite sure how much truth there was to the report, Gladbach’s sporting director, Max Eberl, suggested the potential deal was very much real stating that the club would consider selling the Switzerland international if the right bid came in.

“There are always situations a club has to give consideration to. It depends on our sporting success, it depends on the performance of Granit.

“It also depends on the numbers being offered by clubs, which can go into levels that make you dizzy.”

Following on from these comments, Xhaka himself openly stated that he is determined to play in the Premier League and made it unequivocally clear that his heart is set on a move to England’s top flight.

England is my dream. I’ve never hid that. Whether I’ll be happy there, currently only the good Lord knows.

For me, money is not important. Otherwise I would not switch in 2012 from Basel to Moenchengladbach.

It’s about being a big challenge for me as a footballer.


Today, German broadsheet Bild have sent Arsenal fans into overdrive as they have reported that Granit Xhaka’s move is already a done deal.

It has been previously stated that Arsenal will get the deal done for €43m and Bild now state that they have reliable information that the Swiss international will join the Emirates.
