Granit Xhaka was all smiles in the new Arsenal home kit as the midfielder continues his preparation for his first Premier League season.

The Switzerland international is Arsene Wenger’s marquee signing of the summer – thus far – after the 23-year-old completed a £33m move to the Emirates Stadium from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach before Euro 2016.

The Arsenal midfielder made his first appearance for the north London side in the United States last month as he made his debut as a half-time substitute in a 2-1 victory over MLS All-Stars at Avaya Stadium in San Jose.

Xhaka went on to start his first game for the Gunners in a 3-1 victory over Mexican side Chivas Guadalajara at the weekend as Rob Holding, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Chuba Akpom found the back of the net.

And the Swiss midfielder took to his Instagram page to show Arsenal how he looks in the Arsenal home strip ahead of their season opener against Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on 14 August.
