Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is not considered for sale by manager Mikel Arteta. The Gunners will not entertain any offers for the Swiss midfielder.

Hence, his future with the Premier League giants is secure. The club will also likely offer him a contract extension after the FIFA World Cup.

THE RISE OF GRANIT XHAKA UNDER MIKEL ARTETA

According to reports, Arsenal considers Granit Xhaka, not for sale. The Swiss midfielder has made a turnaround in his career under Mikel Arteta. Hence, he is the first name on the team sheet this season. The report also claims that many La Liga clubs and Serie-A clubs were monitoring his situation. However, his latest rise in form means that the Gunners are going to block potential bids from interested teams.

Arsenal were reportedly ready to sell him before Arteta took charge. The report also claims that the midfielder was also ready to leave the club. However, Arteta rejected the potential inquiries for him. He also made it sure to convince Xhaka to stay at the club. Since then the Gunners and the Swiss midfielder have seen their relationship blossom on the pitch and off the pitch.

ARSENAL HAVE TO KEEP HIM FIT THROUGHOUT THE SEASON

Arsenal will hope that the Swiss midfielder stays fit for the club after the FIFA World Cup. This is because they will have a busy schedule. The Gunners have already Mohamed Elneny out with a major injury. Hence, a major injury to Xhaka would disrupt the team’s midfield. Granit is also helpful with the experience in the dressing room.

He is very helpful for the young players in the dressing room. The Swiss midfielder is constantly helping the young guys settle into the club. Arsenal will hope that Xhaka improves his game further in the World Cup. They will hope that his good form will help the club challenge for the Premier League trophy and the Europa League.

Hence, it is safe to say that Granit Xhaka’s bad days at Arsenal have finally ended. Mikel Arteta can also now build a team around him. It surely looks like the owners will offer him a pay rise in the coming weeks or at the end of the season.
