Some Arsenal fans celebrate after reports claim Xhaka wants to follow Luiz out the exit door
Some Arsenal fans were left celebrating after a report emerged claiming Granit Xhaka could follow David Luiz out the exit door this summer.
In a piece earlier, we analysed the impact of Luiz leaving the team after he announced his intention to leave at the end of his contract this summer.
According to The Athletic, staff at the club believe the Switzerland international will leave north London after enduring a tough term with the club.
Xhaka, labelled a ‘liability‘, seemed to revive his fortunes at the club following the first-half of the season slump by the Gunners. The ‘midfielder’s been near-flawless since the turn of the year and featured in almost every game across all competitions.
Xhaka’s exit would be a surprise given how well he’s played since January. His partnership alongside Thomas Partey hasn’t happened too often but, when it has, allows the Reds to thrive.
His departure would leave a gaping hole in midfield, and with Dani Ceballos already returning to Real Madrid following the end of his loan spell, would leave the side short of numbers.
Here are how fans reacted to the report…
