Arsenal fans on Twitter have rejoiced at the news that inconsistent midfielder Granit Xhaka could be set to depart the Emirates for Italy.
The Swiss international featured prominently this season under Unai Emery, making 29 Premier League appearances, but became something of a scapegoat as Arsenal’s campaign crumbled with just one win in the Gunners’ last five league fixtures.
Despite earning a place in the Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku on May 29, Arsenal fans are desperate to see a squad overhaul after the disappointing fifth-placed Premier League finish.
Currently projected to have an approximate summer budget of £40m should they miss out on Champions League football, Arsenal will need major sales in order to fund significant squad development and Xhaka could be a casualty with Inter Milan interested in his services, according to Corriere dello Sport via Calciomercato.
Arsenal supporters expect a much-changed squad to begin Emery’s second season in north London and many on Twitter are excited at the prospect of Xhaka not being a part of it.
