Arsenal’s top summer target in London ahead of £25m transfer – report

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Granit Xhaka from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach, say reports

Granit Xhaka is in London to complete his medical and agree personal terms with Arsenal ahead of his proposed summer transfer to The Emirates, according to reports.

The north London side are expected to be one of the busiest clubs in the forthcoming summer transfer window as they look to bounce back from the disappointment of a trophyless campaign this season.

Switzerland international Xhaka has long been linked with a move to the north London club and the speculation linking him with the Gunners has gathered pace since the end of the Premier League season.

Now, the Independent is reporting that Xhaka is in the capital as Arsenal look to push through a deal before the start of this summer’s European championships in France.

The same report goes on to say that the 23-year-old will command an initial fee of £25m, but that figure could rise to as much as £30m, depending on his success at the north London club.

Arsenal finished second in the Premier League this season.
