Granit Xhaka drops massive Arsenal transfer hint on Instagram

Arsenal target Granit Xhaka drops possible hint over move to The Emirates on Instagram

Granit Xhaka has dropped a hint that he could be on the brink of a move to Arsenal.

Naturally, Gunners supporters don’t need much encouragement to get excited about a potential outfield signing given that Arsene Wenger only signed goalkepeer Petr Cech last summer.

The north London side have been heavily linked with a move for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Xhaka in recent weeks as the Gunners manager looks to bolster his side.

The 2014 and 2015 FA Cup winners are thought to be willing to pay up to £39m to secure the services for the Switzerland international in the summer transfer window.

And Xhaka sent some Arsenal fans into overdrive on Thursday night after his official Instagram page like Mohamed Elneny’s selfie with Mesut Ozil on the photo-sharing app.
