Sunderland have handed transfer target Arbenit Xhemajli the chance to have a tour of the club’s facilities, according to The Chronicle.
Black Cats boss Phil Parkinson will undoubtedly look to bolster his squad this summer after failing to gain promotion to the Championship and finishing a lowly eighth in the League One standings.
Whilst uncertainty continues to grow around the ownership of the Wearside club, transfer links are starting to develop and Xhemajli is the latest name to be linked with a move to the Stadium of Light.
Chronicle LIVE reported the Wearside club’s interest last week with the Kosovo international currently without a club following his exit from Neuchatel Xamax.
Xhemajli, who is valued at £765,000 by Transfermarkt, was born in Switzerland but represents the Kosovo national side and his impressions have seemingly left a mark on Sunderland boss Parkinson.
Those impressions have become enough for the Wearside club to show the youngster around the club’s facilities with The Chronicle claiming that he has been offered the chance of a flight to England and a tour of the club.
The 22-year-old began his playing career with Swiss side Neuchatel Xamax having spent a number of years through his youth development with Zurich.
Little is known about Xhemajli on these shores, but it seems a potential move to Sunderland is picking up pace.
The youngster will surely be delighted to have the chance to move to England and with Parkinson a keen admirer of his abilities, a move now looks likely if the player himself likes what he sees on Wearside.
Do you think Xhemajli would be a good signing for Sunderland? Let us know in the comments section below…
