Campbell expects Granit Xhaka to leave the club soon

Kevin Campbell predicts that Granit Xhaka’s time as an Arsenal player will soon end.

The midfielder has been at the club since 2016, which makes him one of its longest-serving players.

He was even the club’s captain at the start of the 2019/2020 season before falling out with the fans and losing the armband.

Mikel Arteta trusts him and pushed to get him on a new contract last summer.

But former Arsenal man, Campbell believes at some point Arsenal will let him go for an improved option in midfield.

He tells Football Insider: “I think we will see a parting of the ways soon.

“Look, Xhaka had a very good season last season. But at the end of the day, Arsenal didn’t get it done.

“The midfield needs to be revamped. There needs to be more speed and goals injected into that midfield.

“The reliance on Granit Xhaka that Arsenal had has to go. There has to be enough midfielders there who can do a job.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Xhaka has been a very divisive figure at this club, but he did well in the last campaign and deserves a lot of credit.

Although he is still capable of making some mistakes, overall he had a fantastic season and did a good job for the club.

If he doesn’t leave this summer, we hope he would at least maintain that level of performance.

  1. Hallelujah! That would be the greatest news ever. Arsenals very own viscious, hit man, thug will be gone…. and maybe even replaced by a FOOTBALLER…………………Hallelujah!

  2. Its the blatant misuse of words such as “fantastic” in articles this that do so much damage to truth and to accurate descriptions.
    By no rational view can Xhaka have been said to have had a “fantastic” season. It is either a stupid opinion or, which is the real truth, HYPE GONE MAD!
    Hype is so sadly typical of poorly educated writers who do not have the correct word in their head and therefore go wildly over the top; in other words, hype!

  3. Xhaka is the best midfielder in the world in Arteta’s head.

    I doubt if the apprentice can do without the almighty Xhaka.

    The writer said xhaka was fantastic last season, what xhaka is he talking about? Or, is there another meaning for the word ‘FANTASTIC’ that I don’t know?
    The same Xhaka that played full 90 minutes in the all important game against Newcastle with zero input, only for him to go to the press and lambast his team mates as if he was not on the pitch?

  4. Xhaka should go what has arsenal gain from him except errors that always lead to penalty, surplus reds and yellow cards arsenal need More? capable box to box midfield player that is real flexible while playing not the Swiss man, even eleny Mohammed the Egyptian is far more better

  5. Three successive Arsenal Managers have considered Xhaka to be indispensable despite his obvious failings and glaring weaknesses.Over the years I have tried to fathom why their professional views differ from my own but try as I may, I cannot find a plausible answer .All I know,is that during his time with Arsenal, our midfield has been bereft of drive, pace, energy and creativity.Xhaka alone cannot of course be held entirely responsible for these deficiencies but if he continues to be regarded as a mainstay of our midfield, I see little prospect of us climbing the EPL ladder regardless of who else we sign during the current transfer window..
