Shin-shattering star: Arsenal transfer ‘decision’ will be made before Euros

According to reports from SRF, Arsenal transfer target Granit Xhaka has claimed a decision over his future will be made before Euro 2016 kicks off.

The Borussia Monchengladbach captain is famed for his tough-tackling, to the extent that he picked up three red cards during the 2015/16 Bundesliga campaign.

He’s been linked with a summer transfer to Arsenal repeatedly in recent weeks, with The Telegraph claiming earlier this month that the Gunners are on the verge of completing a £30million deal.

Likewise, Gladbach director Max Eberl confirmed on the club’s official website earlier this week that he had received an offer for the 23-year-old – as reported by FourFourTwo – but refused to name the club involved.

Eberl revealed that a decision will be made before the summer’s European championship in France, where Xhaka is set to feature prominently for Switzerland, and the midfielder has held a similar stance during a recent interview.

He told Swiss television channel SRF; “Whether there are talks or not, the clubs Gladbach and Arsenal know that, but as of now I am still a Gladbach player.

“It might change in the next weeks or it might not change. There will definitely be a decision before the European Championship.”
