Arsenal fans debate about Xhaka’s likelihood for success this season

Granit Xhaka received mixed reviews for his performances in the middle of the park for Arsenal last season.

Overall, the team did not hugely impress in what turned out to be Arsene Wenger’s final campaign in charge of the Gunners.

Now, Unai Emery is in charge, which means that every player in the squad will have to act like a new signing in order to impress the coach.

Xhaka showed glimpses of quality on the ball last season, but for spells of the campaign, he was below par.

Amid reports that Arsenal are trying to sign Uruguay international Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria, question marks have been raised over Xhaka’s standing in the team.

The Switzerland international signed a new contract until 2023 last month, so it is unlikely that he will be farmed out this summer, but there is a chance that the midfielder could end up being a squad player rather than an influential member of the first team.

On Twitter, some Arsenal fans debated about Xhaka’s future in the setup under Emery.
