These are the ‘leaked’ images of Granit Xhaka the potential(most likely) new signing for Arsenal; Xhaka should be the first of many signings during this summer transfer window.
For weeks, rumours have been circulating of The Gunners trying to sign the Borussia Monchengladbach Captain. These pictures suggest that that transfer has been completed or is very near completion for a reported figure of 30 million, for the 23 year Swiss International.
It has been reported that the pictures were leaked by Xhaka’s younger brother on to snapchat. With every Arsenal fan hungry for news on new transfers; it wasn’t long until social media had shared these images thousands of times.
The mirror has also reported the story
Xhaka joined Gladbach in 2012, arriving for £6.3million from Swiss side Basel after a stellar year for the Swiss side, winning the league and cup double, with Xhaka named the Swiss Premier League’s young player of the year.
They also reached the last 16 of the Champions League, knocking out Manchester United en route.
Before then, Xhaka led Switzerland to Under-17 World Cup glory in Nigeria in 2009, before the Euro Under-21 finals in 2011 where they finished runners-up.
Xhaka, born to Kosovo Albanian parents was fast-tracked into the senior Swiss ranks, becoming a full international shortly after his 18th birthday.
Here is one of those youtube highlight videos of Xhaka. This video makes him look very similar to Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla; which might fuel speculation that the spaniard is looking to return home to end his career.
