Arsenal have been heavily linked with Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka, so what’s he like?
The Swiss international is just 23 but took over the captain’s armband at one of Germany’s biggest clubs this season, his fourth campaign with ‘Die Fohlen’.
It’s been another strong season from him, helping Gladbach to fourth with his tenacious bite and sweeping passing range a vital part of the Borussia midfield.
The Gunners have also been linked with all-action box-to-box Leicester City man N’Golo Kanté but Xhaka appears to be a much better fit, happy to scrap and win the ball back but even happier to take his time in possession and play some wonderful passes.
Here’s a little something to whet the appetite ahead of the proposed £34m deal.
