Arsenal fans discuss who they would like to replace Granit Xhaka in January

Granit Xhaka has been stripped of the captaincy.

According to recent reports, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka could be sold in January.

Xhaka has not played since storming off the pitch against Crystal Palace. As per The Mirror, Arsenal are considering a quick sale in January to get Xhaka out of the club.

The Swiss midfielder was the Arsenal captain before the Palace match. When he was substituted, the decision was met with cheers. As he walked off the pitch, Xhaka swore at the Arsenal fans, ripped off his shirt and threw it to the ground and then headed straight down the tunnel.

Xhaka has since apologised but clarified the reasons behind his antics. With persistent abuse on social media, directed towards his family as well as himself, he let his frustrations boil over.

Arsenal are potentially looking to sell Xhaka when the transfer window reopens in the new year. If the 27-year-old does leave, the Gunners could look at replacements.

After news broke of Xhaka’s possible exit, Arsenal fans discussed midfielders on social media. Here are some suggestions for Xhaka replacements in January.
