Granit Xhaka has taken to social media to pay tribute to Arsenal’s fans in the US as the Gunners travelled back home to England after the conclusion of their pre-season tour.

Xhaka helped Arsenal secure a 3-1 win over Chivas in the final game of their tour as Arsene Wenger’s men continued their preparations for the new Premier League campaign.

The Switzerland international is currently getting to grips with life as an Arsenal player following his arrival at the club earlier in the summer transfer window.

And the midfielder was clearly thrilled with how his first few days as a Gunner have panned out.

Xhaka posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Monday morning and wrote: “With a victory to say goodbye from USA, a thank you to the fans for your support 😃 #gunnergranit29”

Arsenal finished second in the Premier League table last season and 10 points behind surprise champions Leicester City.

Xhaka will be hoping to inspire the Gunners to their first top-flight title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign under Wenger.
