Big congratulations are in order for Granit Xhaka and his girlfriend, Leonita Lekaj, after they got engaged this week.

Xhaka and Lekaj have been sunning themselves in Miami during the midfielder’s summer break after a hectic first season in north London, which saw Arsenal finish fifth but also beat Chelsea to the FA Cup.

The pair appeared to be sitting down for dinner when Xhaka got down on one knee… which is usually a bad sign when it comes to Arsenal players.

Fortunately, he was just proposing.

The 24-year-old promptly took to social media – thankfully, after his girlfriend had said yes – to share a snap of the moment, with a caption that included the line, “A golden Ball is a miracle, a golden wife is a paradise!”

It’s hardly Shakespeare but considering English isn’t his first language, we should probably let him off.

Hopefully, the Switzerland international continues to enjoy a relaxing break before pre-season kicks off in July.

Congrats, Granit and Leonita!
