Arsenal fans will be hoping that Granit Xhaka has been trying to convince Ricardo Rodriguez to consider a transfer to The Emirates this summer as the duo posed for a picture together while on international duty with Switzerland.

Arsenal are believed to be set to be one of the busiest clubs in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger bids to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

Rodriguez has been linked with a move to Emirates Stadium in recent days, with the Daily Mirror reporting that the Gunners are ready to meet the player’s £19m release clause.

Xhaka joined Arsenal last month to become the north London side’s first signing of the summer transfer window.

And the Arsenal new boy was all smiles alongside Rodriguez on Monday as the Switzerland squad prepared to head to France for Euro 2016.

Xhaka posted the picture above on his Instagram account on Monday afternoon.
