Granit Xhaka is all smiles with Ricardo Rodriguez while on international duty with Switzerland...
Granit Xhaka was in high spirits as he posed for a picture with reported one-time Arsenal transfer target Ricardo Rodriguez while on international duty with Switzerland this week.
Xhaka has made a strong start to life at The Emirates after moving to the north London club in the summer transfer window.
The midfielder has been a regular fixture in the Gunners’ first team and has already netted two goals for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Arsenal were linked with a transfer move for Rodriguez during the summer transfer window but a move for the Switzerland international did not end up happening.
However, it seems that both Xhaka and Rodriguez are close friends off the pitch as well as being international team-mates on it.
Xhaka posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Tuesday afternoon and wrote: “Even some entertainment with my friend Ricardo after training for the national team. ⚓#ILLYRIA”
Xhaka will be hoping to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to action after the international break with a home clash against Swansea City at The Emirates.
