Gladbach confirm offer for Arsenal target Xhaka

Berlin (AFP) – Borussia Moenchengladbach have confirmed receiving an offer for Swiss international midfielder Granit Xhaka, who has been heavily tipped to join Arsenal.

Gladbach’s sports director Max Eberl told the Rheinischen Post that an offer has been received, but not revealed from which club, for their 23-year-old captain, Xhaka, who has said he can imagine playing for the Gunners.

The defensive midfielder has also said a decision about his future will be made before the European championships begin in France on June 10.

German media report that the transfer would cost Arsenal at least 43 million euros (£33.2m, $48.5m), plus bonus payments, as Xhaka has three years left on his contract.

Speaking to Swiss television, Xhaka said he is the “wrong person to ask” about a move to Arsenal, but could picture himself wearing the famous red and white shirt.

“Whether or not there are talks, the clubs Gladbach and Arsenal know, but as of now I am still a Gladbach player,” he told Swiss broadcaster SRF.

Having played in Gladbach’s final German league game of the season last Saturday, his post-match comments sounded like a farewell after making 108 Bundesliga appearances for Borussia since 2012.

“We have had some experiences which no one will ever forget,” he said after their 2-0 win at Darmstadt which left Gladbach fourth in the table having qualified for a Champions League play-off place.

“It could be that that was the last game for me.

“There will be a decision made before the European championships and we’ll make it together,” he added, referring to his current club Gladbach.
