Arsenal fans react as PSG eye Granit Xhaka
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from Il Romanista claiming that PSG now want Granit Xhaka.
Xhaka is attracting a lot of attention, with the midfielder continuing to impress at Euro 2020 with Switzerland.
According to Il Romanista, he has agreed personal terms with Roma. That would involve signing a five-year deal with the Giallorossi.
However, the Serie A side are still working to agree a fee with Arsenal. And that has seemingly left the door open for a couple of European heavyweights.
Along with Juventus, PSG are also in the running for the 28-year-old. Of course, a move to Parc des Princes would see the Swiss link up with Mauricio Pochettino.
It is a surprise to see Xhaka linked with the Ligue 1 side. The midfielder has, obviously, not had the easiest time at the Emirates.
But for some, PSG’s interest is a sign that perhaps Arsenal may rue letting the £100,000-a-week star leave.
‘Let the bidding war commence’: Arsenal fans discuss PSG wanting Granit Xhaka
Most fans however, seem to see the latest reports as a real positive. With Roma unwilling to meet the Gunners’ asking price, the supporters hope PSG entering the running will spark a bidding war.
At the very least, it surely strengthens Arsenal’s case for Roma to meet his asking price.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Gunners fans have reacted to the reports…
PSG and Juve now in for Granit Xhaka but Twitter tries to make you believe he’s a bad player…
On another note, a bidding war is exactly what Arsenal need.

I’m not sure why some Arsenal fans think just because clubs like Juve and PSG are interested in Xhaka it means he’s good enough for us. Xhaka being good and not good enough for the Premier League can both be true.
