Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are counting down the days until the end of a disappointing season and they’re demanding wholesale changes are made in the summer.
Fortunately for the supporters, it seems the Gunners are keen to get a huge deal completed swiftly as The Mail states Arsenal are in advanced talks with Borussia Monchengladbach regarding Swiss international Granit Xhaka.
Arsenal need to bolster their midfield ranks this summer as that area of the squad has looked lacklustre at times this season, whilst the Gunners will lose experienced trio Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky in the coming months as their contracts expire.
With Santi Cazorla, now 31, having one-year remaining on his contract, Xhaka is seen by many as the perfect long-term replacement for the World Cup winner and Arsenal are negotiating a fee between £20m and £30m for the 23-year-old.
Widely considered to be one of the best deep-lying midfielders currently available in European football, his signing could add a tremendous boost to Arsenal’s squad.
Is Xhaka the prime target this summer Arsenal fans? Let us know in the comments below!
