Granit Xhaka: Mönchengladbach willing to let midfielder leave

Borussia Monchengladbach director of sport Max Eberl has admitted the club could let Arsenal and Liverpool target Granit Xhaka leave if they received a tempting offer.

The Swiss international, who was recently appointed captain of his current club, is reportedly on the radar of both Arsenal and Liverpool, but could cost around £37.6million.

And their pursuit of the highly-rated midfielder has been given a boost after Monchengladbach director of sport Eberl admitted the club would be open to selling their prized asset should they receive the right offer.

Ebert said: “It depends a bit on our own sporting success, it depends on Granit’s own performances and of course it depends on the figures.

“If they reach a certain level, then you could start to get dizzy.

“There are always situations in which every club would have to make considerations.

“It is all in our own hands. As things stand, we are happy to have him with us and hopefully he will stay with us for a long time.”

Xhaka, who signed a new contract at the Bundesliga side last Febuary, has made 23 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring three goals.

Fourth-placed Gladbach return to Bundesliga action against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.
