It looks like the Arsenal transfer rumours hitting the football media this week about the Borussia Monchengladbach and Switzerland international midfield star Granit Xhaka may well have been based on fact rather than the speculative guesswork we see so often during a transfer window.
The player himself has been talking about a possible move to one of Europe’s big boys and with all the money in the Premier League these days and with the Gunners currently sitting right on top of the league you would have to say that Arsenal fit the bill.
However, the Daily Mail is also reporting that the talented 23-year old would not be happy to move to a big club if it meant him being just a squad player and sitting on the bench a lot.
Xhaka said, “Gladbach are a top club. But if I were someday to go to a top, top, top club, I want to play there.
“I’m not the type to be on the bench.”
With him being a central midfielder and with Arsenal having just signed one of those in Mohamed Elneny to add to the already strong squad options like Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla and all, the Swiss star would have to be a pretty special talent to come to Arsenal and become a first team regular.
Unless of course, those worrying rumours about selling Ramsey to Barcelona are true. What do you think Gooners?
