Granit Xhaka drops huge Arsenal transfer hint on Instagram

Granit Xhaka sends Arsenal supporters into a frenzy after his Instagram activity

Granit Xhaka has dropped a big hint on Instagram that his touted £33.1m move to Arsenal could be on the verge of being completed.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder since Arsenal’s 4-0 victory over Aston Villa in the final game of the Premier League season.

Arsenal are thought to be willing to offer up to £33.1m to secure the highly-rated midfielder’s signature as Arsene Wenger attempts to bolster his options ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Unsurprisingly, Gunners supporters don’t need too much encouragement to get excited about a potential signing given Wenger’s frugal transfer policy last summer, with Petr Cech his only acquisition.

And some eagled-eyed Arsenal fans spotted that Xhaka had liked a photo of one Gooner sporting his name in the red and white colours of the north London club.

However, France midfielder Francis Coquelin may have something to say about the shirt numbers given that he is the current occupier of No34.
