Arsenal fans have been celebrating after German publication Kicker updated them on the latest news regarding Granit Xhaka’s potential move to Hertha Berlin.
The publication are claiming that the player has been identified by the club as the ‘ideal solution ‘ for their defensive midfield role.
It seems the 27-year-old’s long-term future is away from the Emirates after he was involved in an infamous spat with supporters during the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.
Since the spat, he seemingly worked his way back to the first-team and started the club’s draw against Everton as the side kept their first clean sheet since the 1-0 win over Bournemouth. However, a Premier League depature still seems to be on the cards.
Fans were over the moon with the news surrounding their former captain as they took to Twitter to celebrate.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
