The Champions League may not have been too much fun for Arsenal this season, although it did have it´s good moments with the brilliant final group match win away at Olympiacos that got us through and the home win over the German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, but the competition could be the key to Arsenal sealing the first transfer of the summer.
According to a Metro report >Arsene Wenger is very close to agreeing a deal to bring in the brilliant young midfielder Granit Xhaka to north London when the summer transfer window opens. And the fact that the 23-year old´s current club Borussia Monchengladbach are currently out of the Champions League places and that they finished fourth in the group behind Man City, Juventus and Sevilla this season may have played a big part in the player’s decision.
The Arsenal manager has apparently met the player’s agent and his father recently to discuss the summer move to the Premier League, which Xhaka has recently been talking about as a dream move for him. I am not so sure that Wenger will agree to the reported transfer fee of over £30 million but it does seem like Arsenal are poised to sign this talented young Bundesliga star.
