Granit Xhaka: Pictured in Arsenal kit

Arsenal appear to be closing in on a deal for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka after he was pictured in an Arsenal kit.

The Swiss international has flown to north London ahead of a £25million move to the Gunners, with Arsenal having reportedly agreed a fee with the Bundesliga outfit for the services of the midfield enforcer.

The 23-year-old admitted earlier this week he could see himself playing for Arsenal, and a deal now appears to be imminent after he was pictured posing during a photoshoot in next season’s Arsenal kit.

The photos are the clearest indication yet that Xhaka has finalised his move to the Emirates Stadium, meaning the midfielder, who has earned 40 international caps for Switzerland, can fully focus on preparation for Euro 2016 next month.
