Arsenal could look to sell Granit Xhaka in the January transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Switzerland international is facing an uncertain future at the north London side.

The same article states that Xhaka was hoping to secure a recall to the Arsenal team following his recent fallout with the Gunners supporters.

However, Unai Emery has decided to strip Xhaka of the club captaincy after the dressing room voted for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to replace the Swiss midfielder in the role.

According to the same story, the Arsenal manager’s decision has led to serious questions about whether Xhaka has a long-term future at the north London side.

Xhaka made a mixed start to the Premier League season to attract persistent criticism from the Arsenal supporters for his erratic performances in the middle of the park.

The former Gunners captain clashed with Arsenal fans during the north London club’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at The Emirates last month.

Xhaka’s substitution in the Premier League clash was greeted with cheers by the home side before the Swiss star slowly made his way off the pitch.

As the dissent from the stands grew louder at Xhaka’s slow departure, the 27-year-old resorted to a sensational outburst against the supporters.

Arsenal are in fifth place in the Premier League table.
