The Switzerland international was given a guided tour of Emirates Stadium for the first time as he got used to his new surroundings.

The 23-year-old has become Arsenal’s first signing of the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger moved quickly to bolster his midfield options at The Emirates.

The Gunners continue to be linked with a host of other players but Xhaka is currently the only deal to be officially confirmed by the Gunners.
