The 24-year-old midfielder joins in a deal worth over
£33 million from Borussia Monchengladbach and is
the start of an expected busy summer for the
GunnersArsenal have completed the signing of Granit
Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach for a deal
worth up to £33.1 million.
The 23-year-old arrived at the club’s training ground
on Friday to undergo a medical and put the final
touches on a four-year deal. Xhaka is expected to
wear the no.34 shirt after Francis Coquelin agreed to
Xhaka’s arrival before the start of the transfer
window is a statement of intent by Arsene Wenger,
who saw his Arsenal side clinch second place over
local rivals Tottenham on the final day of the season,
and the start of what is expected to be a busy
summer for the Gunners.
“I’m very proud to be joining Arsenal,” Xhaka told
the club’s official website. “I cannot wait to move to
London, represent this special club and play in the
“I will give everything to help Arsenal win trophies
and make the fans happy.”
Wenger added: “Granit Xhaka is an exciting young
player, already with good Champions League and
Bundesliga experience. We have been watching him
for a long time now and he is a player who will add
quality to our squad.
“We wish Granit a good Euro 2016 with Switzerland
and look forward to welcoming him to Arsenal ahead
of next season.”
The Switzerland international is the second
midfielder to arrive at the Emirates Stadium in under
six months, following Mohamed Elneny’s January
move, as Wenger prepares for the expected
departures of Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and
Wenger’s failure to buy an outfield player in the
transfer window last summer received widespread
criticism from Arsenal fans, and he aims to get the
majority of his transfer business done before the club
travel to the United States for their two pre-season
games in San Jose and Los Angeles at the end of July.
Arsenal remain in discussions with Bolton over the
signing of defender Rob Holding. A bid of £750,000
was rejected by the club recently relegated to League
One, but the player is expected to push for a move if a
follow-up offer is rebuffed.
