Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have received a huge transfer boost today, after their prime target revealed his interest in signing for the Gunners.
Speaking to Swiss television station SRF, Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka confirmed his interest in moving to the Premier League this summer, where Arsenal are a highly-reported destination.
‘The Premier League is not my goal, but a childhood dream. It is a dream that could be fulfilled.’
‘Whether there are talks or not, the clubs Gladbach and Arsenal know that, but as of now I am still a Gladbach player. It might change in the next weeks or it might not change.’
‘There will definitely be a decision before the European Championships.’
With just a few weeks to go before France kick-off Euro 2016 against Romania, with Xhaka’s Switzerland playing their first game the next day against Albania, our landlord believes the 23-year-old’s move to north London is imminent.
