Ex-Gunner has no problem with Xhaka leaving Arsenal in the summer

Granit Xhaka has been one of the most divisive players Arsenal has signed in the last few seasons.

The Swiss midfielder is inconsistent but he still retains the trust of Mikel Arteta.

He was even Arsenal’s captain at some point in his Gunners career, but will the club miss him when he leaves?

Probably not, with former Gunners star, Kevin Campbell convinced if he leaves at the end of this season, it would not be such a bad thing.

The midfielder has become the main midfield partner to Thomas Partey in this campaign.

However, Arsenal has been linked with a move for several other players, and Campbell is convinced the club will do just fine if he leaves the Emirates, especially if they sign the right replacement.

He told Football Insider: “I don’t mind him going if he’s replaced in the summer. There is talk of Tielemans and Bissouma. Now we’re talking. They are the level above. They would give Arsenal extra running power. It would allow us to bridge the gap to the bigger teams.

“If Xhaka went to Roma it would be a case of thank you and we move on.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Xhaka has done a good job for Arteta since the Spaniard became the club’s manager, and that is why he still gets enough playing time.

The Gunners will continue to add new players to the group, and that means we could get a better midfielder soon.

If we do that, then it would be smart to cash in on Xhaka when we can.

  1. Perfect answer. He has been the most divisive player AFC has had recently.
    There are players to replace him like: Bissouma, Kessie, Renato Sanches.
    I just pray MA does not bring a kid to the middle of the park.
    Midfield is for mature minds. We already have young ones in the attack, let’s complement it by bringing in mature midfielders.

  2. We need to buy 2 midfielders. There is a strong possibility he will finally leave this summer and Elneny is out of contract. I think Fabian Ruiz-£16m and Bissouma/Phillips would be good signings

  3. We all don’t mind to see him leave to make room for new faces such as tielemans and phillips or sanches.we truly need mature minds in the middle of the park to complement partey.

  4. I thought that Xhaka and Partey were the best I’ve seen from them together against Brentford, let’s hope they can take that into the Wolves game tomorrow and for the rest of the season, which is what matters at the moment

    Speculation on who comes and goes can wait until the summer for me

    It might have been my imagination, or the way the opposition played, but I thought Xhaka played a little more advanced than Partey on Saturday, not something I had noticed happening before

  5. it’s about time KC brought his A game, unlike our Swiss miss, who rarely if ever does likewise unless he’s wearing his country’s kit and thirsty for a move elsewhere

  6. Well at least this time CAMPBELL HAS TALKED SENSE ABOUT XHAKA LEAVING , EVEN THOUGH HE HAS MERELY STATED THE BL***ING OBVIOUS!

    TO HOPE FOR ANY COMMENT OF WISDOM THAT SHOWS US SOMETHING NOBODY KNEW IS TO HOPE FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE FROM Campbell, King of the Obvious.

    I assume KC now has a vested financial interest in JA, as he is quoted so constantly and so boringly too.
