New Arsenal signing comments on Gunners transfer

Granit Xhaka expresses his delight with his first few weeks as an Arsenal player

Granit Xhaka has expressed his delight with the way he is settling into life at Arsenal following his summer transfer.

The Switzerland midfielder became the north London club’s first signing of the summer transfer window back in May as Arsenal moved quickly to snap him up from Borussia Monchengladbach.

Xhaka made his first unofficial appearance for Arsenal last week as he featured during the 2-1 win over the MLS All-Stars in San Jose during the club’s pre-season tour of the US.

The midfielder had been given an extended summer holiday following his involvement in Euro 2016 with Switzerland.

And Xhaka has admitted that he is thrilled with the way he has been settling into life at his new club so far this summer.

Speaking in an interview with Arsenal’s website, Xhaka said: “I’ve been welcomed really well, that I have the trust of my team-mates. I’m really pleased to have finally played my first game.

“This club fits to me and I fit to it. Arsenal play attractive football and I enjoy that. I think you could see today that this team has a lot of quality and we’ll give our all to show that on the pitch.

“We will give our all to win something. I’ve already noticed how high the expectation levels are at this club. You realise that quickly. But we’ll go from game to game and will make sure that we’re well prepared for every game.”
