With Arsenal fans still not over the disappointment of Jamie Vardy rejecting us and choosing to stay at Leicester City after agreeing to sign a new four years contract and Henrikh Mkhitaryan going to Manchester United when we all thought he will be coming to Arsenal, Arsenal have officially announced Granit Xhaka as an Arsenal player.
He was unveiled few weeks ago before the start of the European championship but only just yesterday officially became an Arsenal player and was spotted at London Colney having a look at what will be his new training base.
Arsenal released the following message on their official twitter account;

Xhaka signed for Arsenal from Borussia Monchengladbach in a deal said to be worth as much as 30 million after add ons. He passed his medical last month before flying to France with Switzerland for the European Champion.
He will be expected to help solidify Arsenal’s midfield next season. It will however be interesting to see who Wenger chooses to play between Xhaka and Coquelin who seems to have made the first team shirt for the defensive midfield role his.
