Not been much to shout about for the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern recently, though the otherwise miserable Gunners have been given a slight reprieve following reports in ESPN that their club are confident of making a big signing.
The North London giants are reportedly increasingly confident of landing Swiss international Granit Xhaka in a summer deal to revitalise their squad.
Following yet another failed title challenge, a major summer overhaul is expected at the Emirates as they look to keep the pace with the top order in the Premier League.
Mikel Arteta is thought to be close to retiring, while the likes of Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky are soon to be out of contract.
Xhaka is extremely highly rated with Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach, excelling as one of the best central midfielders in Europe.
The 23-year old has long been linked with a £30m move to the Gunners, who appear to be finally addressing their central midfield area after many years.
Is Xhaka the man to finally sort out Arsenal’s midfield?
