Granit Xhaka has praised Arsenal for their summer business as he claims that the club is aiming to return to playing Champions League football.
The midfielder is one of the most important members of the Arsenal first team and he has been part of their recent success stories.
The Gunners have won the FA Cup and the Community Shield recently under Arteta and they have backed the Spaniard in this transfer window as they look to build on those successes.
They have signed Gabriel Magalhaes, Willian, and Dani Ceballos (on-loan), yet their transfer business isn’t finished.
Add those new signings to the new deal that the club has handed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and you will see a team that can challenge for a top-four spot.
Xhaka has praised the signing of those players and he claims that they have come with a lot of “quality and mentality”, before adding that the players are working hard to take Arsenal back to the Champions League.
“With Willian and Gabriel, Arsenal brought a lot of quality and mentality into the dressing room,” Xhaka told the Swiss Telegraphic Agency via Football London.
“Willian knows how to win titles.
“And the extension with Aubameyang was an important signal for all of us – we want to go back to the Champions League.”
Xhaka has stepped up big time since Arteta arrival. Even if Partey comes, I expect Xhaka to still be starting games. Partey can play in a variety of roles and wouldn’t be surprised if he took on more of an advance position and played next to Xhaka
Xhaka is a quality player…..
similar to Petit is some ways
hes a good passer of the balls especially the long ones and a good long range shooter
he has improved in his defensive duties
However he not big name or big tag player which the fans want
