Arsenal star might be tempted to leave the Emirates after new signings

If Arsenal signs Declan Rice or Moises Caicedo next season, Granit Xhaka might consider leaving the Emirates Stadium to avoid being relegated to a secondary role, suggested Paul Brown to GIVEMESPORT

During the upcoming summer transfer window, Mikel Arteta aims to strengthen the midfield of Arsenal. His primary targets ahead of the season are West Ham captain Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo from Brighton.

According to transfer expert Dean Jones, Arteta's side is not actively seeking to sell Granit Xhaka during the upcoming summer transfer window, despite their rumored interest in other midfielders. The Swiss international is a top target by the Bundesliga Bayern Leverkusen in the transfer window of summer 2024, rather than this year.  

Xhaka's career in Arsenal has experienced a remarkable turnaround since being stripped of the captaincy in 2019 for gesturing towards frustrated fans when being substituted. Although not reinstated as captain, he has led the team in Europa League matches and performed well as a deputy to midfield partner Odegaard in the Premier League. Xhaka's impressive performances have contributed to Arsenal's title push, and his absence has been felt when Vieira has replaced him.
