Arsenal fans are split over Xhaka

Granit Xhaka is a very interesting footballer.

On the one hand, the Arsenal midfielder is a player with excellent ability and the physical qualities needed to get around the park in the Premier League.

On the other, he is a player who does not really offer too much when all is said and done.

Xhaka is caught ball-watching on too many occasions, and despite being regarded as a player with a fierce strike, the midfielder only managed three goals in 48 games last season, and did not exactly provide much in the way of a defensive shield.

Xhaka, who is valued at £31.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, is a footballer who splits opinion, and that is also the case when it comes to the Arsenal supporters.

Indeed, Xhaka is regularly tipped as an individual capable of captaining Arsenal, but there are also plenty of the club’s fans who would be happy to see him leave in this summer’s transfer window.
