Arsenal, have signed Granit Xhaka from Borussia Moenchengladbach. And according to the Mirror, the Swiss player has passed his medical.
The player was reportedly at London Colney on Saturday and went through a medical with Arsenal which was successful. The club also had to rush through his photoshot to enable him regroup with his national team mates ahead for training for the European Championship.
The pictures from the Photoshot was leaked on social media. Unfortunately in Arsenal’s customary ways, the deal is yet to be announced, despite everyone and their dog now know Granit Xhaka will be playing for Arsenal next season. It is believed the deal will be announced on Friday, one week after he officially passed his medical with the club and put pen to paper.
This can be very weird as the usual custom is to announce a player as soon as he’s one of yours. Some even go to the extent of making announcements before the player’s arrival. Not Arsenal. With Arsenal, the fans have to wait for as many as two weeks before deal are made official. Why the club does that to us, we will never know but to me, it is makes no sense whatsoever.
It is believed that Arsenal paid £30m for the midfielder which makes him Arsenal’s third most-expensive player behind Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez. It is expected that he’ll add more flair to Arsenal’s midfield as Arsene looks to beef up his team for next season.
