Arsenal ready to consider serious transfer offers for midfielder this January

Arsenal are reportedly ready to consider ‘serious’ transfer offers for midfielder Granit Xhaka this January.

The Switzerland international initially looked an important player who’d shown real improvement under Mikel Arteta’s management, but it now seems his future is in doubt again, according to Eurosport.

Arsenal could do with making some changes to their squad after a poor first half of the season, with Xhaka generally not looking good enough to play for a club with serious ambitions of challenging for big trophies or trying to get into the top four.

The 28-year-old has been at Arsenal since 2016 and it is surely now pointless to keep on waiting with the hope that he’ll finally fulfil his potential at the Emirates Stadium.

It remains to be seen if anyone will come in with an offer that AFC will deem acceptable, but Eurosport’s report suggests an exit could be on the cards in the right circumstances this winter.

It would probably be for the best if Arsenal sold a player like Xhaka to fund a deal for someone like Dominik Szoboszlai or Houssem Aouar, who are also linked with the club in Eurosport’s report.

    They should have taken any offers received at the end of last Season!
    A run of reasonable effort, concentration and form showed Xhaka in a favourable light following on from his previous shortcomings.
    There is no doubt that his abilities..such as they are..would be far better suited to the German,Spanish or Italian Leagues.In the same way that he is clearly unsuited to the pace and physicality of the English Premier League.Unfortunately Arteta’s FA Cup success seemed to get the better of him and he suddenly decided that he could make proverbial “silk purses out of sow’s ears”…As is plain for all to see neither Mustafi,Bellerin,Xhaka nor Cebellos will be able to take Arsenal to the consistent level of performance that we all crave.Hopefully the penny has finally dropped as far as the Football Club is concerned?!

    Obviously Artete lacks man management
    Guendouzi and Ozils should be still part of the squad
    Xhaka,willock are not the answer and not good enough for arsenal
