Confirmed: Arsenal Could Be Just Days Away From Agreeing Midfielder Deal (Not Declan Rice)
Arsenal have been moving really fast in the current transfer window. They have been pushing hard to complete deals for various players. The plan is to add to their current squad depth, which would help them challenge the likes of Manchester City and more, for various titles.
And the idea is to win at least one trophy/title in the upcoming campaign. This, after a season where they surprised one and all with their performances. However, at the end of it all, they fell short and were unable to win anything. This would be lingering in the minds of manager Mikel Arteta and the club’s hierarchy.
And they would not want this problem to re-appear in the near future. For that purpose, the Kroenkes have been spending big money this summer already. They have pushed for a deal for Kai Havertz from Chelsea. And now the Declan Rice deal is on the verge of being completed as well.
The Latest Deal For This Quality Midfielder That Arsenal Could Be On The Verge Of Completing!?
There is no doubt that a successful transfer window comprises of both types of deals, quality incomings and various outgoings. With one of these, a window can’t be perfect. In modern days, sales are equally important with factors like FFP monitoring the net spend!!
With that being said, Arsenal could be on the verge of agreeing a deal for Granit Xhaka now. The Gunners have been in talks with Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen for quite some time now. And it seems that the deal could be completed in the next few days!!
Initially, the asking price from Arsenal was much more than the evaluation of the Bundesliga outfit. Due to this, it was not possible for the two teams to agree a deal. However, it seems now that things have changed. And a deal could be done in the current week or so.
The main question still that most Arsenal fans are wondering is, whether the club needs to sell. And why is Xhaka so keen on leaving!? It’s quite tricky at present. But if there are more reinforcements that are being added, then the deal makes some sense.
Gooners Across The Globe Have A Mixed Reaction For The Xhaka Exit!!
Arsenal fans across the globe wanted Xhaka to continue. He had the best season of his career at the Emirates, in the previous campaign. However, it seems that the ageing midfielder is keen to move on.
Sometimes, these stars just want to play less intensity football towards the end of the careers. Xhaka is 30 at present. But turns 31 in September. Though, he still has quite a few years that he can give to football, it’s time that he takes a back-seat. This helps players remain active long-term, once the pass the age of 30.
And it seems that his return to the Bundesliga is imminent now. Whether it will happen in the current summer transfer window or not, remains to be seen. For now, he has said his goodbyes and the negotiations are on. And that’s the latest on his transfer saga.
