Photos: New Arsenal signing deep in discussions with Arsene Wenger in California heat
Arsene Wenger is photographed chatting to new Arsenal signing Granit Xhaka during training
Granit Xhaka was snapped deep in discussion with Arsene Wenger as Arsenal trained in San Jose on Tuesday afternoon.
The Gunners flew out to the United States earlier this week ahead of their pre-season friendly fixture against an all-star MLS side at Avaya Stadium on Thursday evening.
Arsenal manager Wenger has completed three signings in the summer transfer window so far and Xhaka has been the most expensive of the north London side’s new recruits.
The Switzerland international swapped Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach for Arsenal in a £33m deal in May ahead of his national team’s disappointing Euro 2016 campaign.
However, Xhaka will be one of the Arsenal stars on show in a depleted squad, with Chile forward Alexis Sanchez and Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil still on their summer holidays.
And Wenger was photographed deep in discussion with Xhaka during Arsenal’s training session in San Jose on Tuesday afternoon less than 24 hours after arriving in California.
