Granit Xhaka is looking for a home in Milan in anticipation of a move to the city to join AC Milan in January, according to reports in Switzerland.
RSI report that despite publically stating he plans to continue to fight for his place at Arsenal, Xhaka is already looking for a new house in Milan. They claim the midfielder is intent on leaving the club after everything that’s happened in the last couple of weeks.
It wouldn’t be hugely surprising if Milan did move for Xhaka, given it was Milan managing director Ivan Gazidis who brought the player to Arsenal in the first place. There’s also a sense the midfielder would be better suited to the more tactical playing style in Italy.
Xhaka may also have made a bit of an impression in the country in the last couple of seasons, starting in three wins over AC Milan and Napoli.
For now, as mentioned previously, Xhaka is sticking to the line that he’s happy in London, he’s had a “great time” at Arsenal so far and he’s not going to let what happened change that.
We should see in the next month or so whether that’s true and he gets reintegrated into the team, or whether it really is over for him with the Gunners.
