Granit Xhaka Admits He’s Considering Leaving Arsenal

Arsenal star Granit Xhaka has dropped a bombshell by declaring he is considering leaving the club – just one year after signing a five-year contract extension.

The Swiss midfielder made the announcement while on international duty ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Georgia and Denmark.

Xhaka, 26, joined the Gunners in 2016 for £35million from Borussia Monchengladbach and has featured in 126 games, netting on 11 occasions.

He has established himself as a key player under Unai Emery – captaining the side on a number of occasions this season.

But his recent comments are unlikely to go down too well with the Spaniard, who has taken his Arsenal squad to Dubai for a warm-weather training camp.

Speaking to Tagblatt, Xhaka –  who also revealed his father analyses every game – said: “I’m very ambitious, I want to take the next step.

“Arsenal does not have to be the last stop.”
