Arsenal ready to listen to offers for £100,000-a-week midfielder

The London giants are reportedly ready to consider ‘serious’ transfer offers for midfielder Granit Xhaka this winter. The 28-year-old midfielder initially looked an important player who’d shown real improvement under the Spanish manager’s management, but it now looks his future is in doubt again.

The London giants could do with making some changes to their squad after a poor first half of the campaign, with Granit generally not looking good enough to play for a club with serious ambitions of challenging for big titles or trying to get into the top four.

Xhaka has been at the London club since 2016 and it is surely now pointless to keep on waiting with the hope that he’ll finally fulfill his potential at Arsenal. It stays to be seen if anyone will come in with an offer that Gunners will deem acceptable, but Eurosport’s report suggests an exit could be on the cards in the right circumstances this winter.

It would probably be for the best if the London giants sold a footballer like Switzerland international to fund a deal for someone like Dominik Szoboszlai or Houssem Aouar, who are also linked with the club in Eurosport’s report.

The London giants have reportedly decided that RB Salzburg playmaker Dominik Szoboszlai is likely to be their top target in the winter transfer window.
