Arsenal over £10m short in latest bid for top transfer target

According to reports from BILD, Borussia Monchengladbach have rejected Arsenal’s latest transfer bid for star midfielder Granit Xhaka.

The Switzerland international has been in strong form this season, averaging 2.4 tackles, 2.7 interceptions and a whopping 82 passes per appearance – although he’s also picked up three red cards from 28 Bundesliga outings.

He’s been linked with a summer transfer to the Emirates continuously over the last few months and earlier this week, the 23-year-old informed reporters that his future would be decided before the European Championships.

Likewise, Gladbach director Max Eberl recently confirmed that he’s received an offer for the 23-year-old, but it appears that offer was well below the club’s valuation.

Indeed, BILD claim Arsenal’s bid was worth just £19million, whereas the German club value their skipper at closer to £31million.

Consequentially, Gladbach have turned down Arsenal’s offer, expecting the north London club to return with a more serious bid in the coming weeks.
