Granit Xhaka has hinted that he would be open to a move away from Arsenal in the future.

The Switzerland international has been a regular fixture in the first team at The Emirates since having signed for the Gunners from Borussia Monchengladbach back in the summer of 2016.

Xhaka was a firm favourite under Arsene Wenger, with the midfielder having started plenty of games under the former Arsenal boss in his last two seasons in charge.

The 26-year-old has continued to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Arsenal this season under Unai Emery, starting 25 games in the Premier League.

He has scored four goals and made one assist in the top flight to help Arsenal up into fourth place in the Premier League table.

Now, the midfielder has hinted that he would be open to a move away from Arsenal in the future, despite his regular playing time this season.

Xhaka told Swiss newspaper Tagblatt, as quoted by Metro: “I’m very ambitious, I want to take the next step, Arsenal does not have to be the last stop.”

Xhaka will be hoping to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action after the international break with a home clash against Newcastle United on Monday 1 April.
