Granit Xhaka is on holiday with his girlfriend ahead of the start of his Arsenal career
Granit Xhaka looks to be making the most of his summer holidays before he reports back to Arsenal for pre-season duty later this month.
The Switzerland international became the north London club’s first signing of the summer transfer window last month as Arsene Wenger moved quickly to bolster his midfield options ahead of next season.
Xhaka officially put pen to paper on his contract with the Gunners last week and was given a guided tour of Emirates Stadium.
Now, the 23-year-old has left the British summer behind and jetted off to warmer climes to enjoy some downtime with his girlfriend ahead of the new season with Arsenal.
And Xhaka looked to be having a good time as he posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday afternoon.
Wenger is believed to be on the lookout for a number of other new signings this summer as he prepares for the 2016-17 season.
The Gunners finished second in the Premier League table last term.
