Liverpool and Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have had their excitement levels kicked up a notch, as they celebrate positive reports on the transfer front with a round of shots.
The 23-year-old Swiss international has been linked with a transfer to both Arsenal and Liverpool and Borussia Monchengladbach’s sporting director has hinted at a sale, despite the player signing a new deal just last year.
“It depends a bit on our own sporting success, it depends on Granit’s own performances and of course it depends on the figures. If they reach a certain level, then you could start to get dizzy. There are always situations in which every club would have to make considerations.”
“It is all in our own hands. As things stand, we are happy to have him with us and hopefully he will stay with us for a long time.”
Xhaka is the star of a Gladbach side doing relatively well in the Bundesliga, as they currently sit fourth in the table, and in line for consecutive seasons in the Champions League, ahead of this weekend’s fierce clash with Borussia Dortmund.
Our landlord believes Xhaka would jump at the chance to join a more competitive club like Arsenal though, with it extremely unlikely Gladbach will pip the likes of Bayern Munich and Dortmund to any success.
Would Xhaka be a perfect fit for the Premier League? Who should sign him? Let us know in the comments below!
