Arsenal and Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern getting ready for our Friday night karaoke are signing songs of celebration this afternoon, as they’ve heard a top target is keen for a Premier League switch this summer.
“England is my dream. I do not hide it. Whether I’ll be happy there, only the good Lord knows. For me money is not important. Otherwise I would not move from Basel to Monchengladbach in 2012.”
Arsenal are likely to revamp their midfield options this summer, with Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini all seeing their contracts expire, whilst Jurgen Klopp will make his mark on the Liverpool squad.
Both Premier League sides want Xhaka as a major summer addition and it seems increasingly likely that he will move this year.
Our landlord is struggling to predict where he’ll end up though, as Liverpool can offer more regular first-team football but Arsenal are in a better position to offer chances at Champions League level.
Which club needs Xhaka the most? Let us know in the comments below!
