Exclusive – Xhaka-Leverkusen Deal Nears Completion
As we’ve been aware for some time now, Granit Xhaka is planning to part ways with Arsenal at the end of the season. The Swiss player has attracted a flurry of attention in recent times, with clubs across Germany, England, and Italy expressing significant interest – a story we reported on just yesterday.
Arsenal Informer has gathered that the negotiations with Leverkusen are now at an advanced stage. We understand that the player’s representatives are anticipated to finalise the deal by this Saturday. Should this proceed as expected, otherwise there may be some delays if the player is not happy with the deal.
In the lead up to this point, the player’s representatives have been proactive, exploring as many potential avenues as possible for the Swiss international. Their actions underscore the intention to ensure that Xhaka has the best possible opportunities moving forward. This has even included contact with Italian giants AC Milan, indicating a broad scope in their search for the right fit for Xhaka’s talents.
We also note that interest hasn’t been confined to those clubs making formal offers. Borussia Dortmund, for example, showed strong interest in the player, but despite the significant links and speculation, never formally entered the race. The wide interest in Xhaka serves to underscore the value that he brings to the pitch, and the anticipated deal with Leverkusen is testament to that.
