Arsenal anchorman drops hint about his future

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has dismissed reports linking him with a move away from the Emirates Stadium this summer.

The 28-year-old anchorman is currently in his fifth campaign with the North London club and has established himself as one of Mikel Arteta’s trusted players.

However, reports have suggested that Swiss playmaker is one of five senior Arsenal players who have been considering their futures ahead in the summer.

Swiss international midfielder, however, insists he and his family are happy in north London.

‘There are always rumours at the end of the season, that’s for sure,’ Xhaka told RP Online.

‘But I still have a two-year contract in London and I am very happy with my family here.

‘First of all, I’m looking at a successful Euro 2020 with the national team.’

Granit Xhaka also believes the Gunners were ‘unfortunate’ to be hit with so many injuries before they were dumped out of the Europe League.

‘It was a big disappointment to be eliminated so shortly before stepping into the Europa League final and a possible return to the Champions League,’ said Xhaka.

‘All in all it was very unfortunate for us, especially in the second leg we had a lot of injuries and couldn’t play with our best team.

‘You have to stay positive and attack again next season.’
