Granit Xhaka was making the most of his final days of freedom ahead of his first pre-season as an Arsenal player.

The Switzerland international completed one of the biggest Premier League deals of the summer transfer window so far after Arsenal signed the midfielder in a £33m deal from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach.

Xhaka has already checked out Arsenal’s training ground facilities and ventured around the north London side’s impressive Emirates Stadium following his big-money to the Premier League from the German top flight.

However, the new Arsenal signing is still on holiday in Kosovo as the 23-year-old relaxes following Switzerland’s Euro 2016 campaign in France which ended in disappointment at the last-16 stage.

And Xhaka posted the above photo with his friends on his Instagram page as the Gunners midfielder enjoyed some grub while on holiday.
