Granit Xhaka is reportedly on the verge of completing a move to Arsenal

The Switzerland international has been on the Gunners’ radar for some time as Arsene Wenger looks to revamp his squad.

Reports emerged yesterday claiming Arsenal were on the brink of agreeing a deal for his transfer after sorting out personal terms.

German publication Bild suggested there were disagreements over a fee with Monchengladbach wanting £35.2million (45m euros).

But according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli, both teams will agree on a price today.

He tweeted: “Xhaka fee should be agreed tomorrow. Clubs meet today. #Arsenal.”

With a deal in motion, Gladbach released a statement confirming they’d received an offer for the midfielder.

“Sporting director Max Eberl has confirmed that there has been a specific offer for the Swiss midfielder,” the post read.

“An agreement with the interested club is still pending.”

Xhaka would be a welcome addition to Wenger’s midfield with Mathieu Flamini, Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky all set to leave the club.

The 23-year-old’s arrival would see him compete with the likes of Mohamed Elneny, Francis Coquelin, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey for a starting spot.
