Xhaka to end Arsenal stint after stellar season
Granit Xhaka

After eight years of wearing the red and white shirt, Granit Xhaka is ready to bid farewell to Arsenal at the end of the 2022/23 season.

The Swiss international has been a polarizing figure among the fans, but he has always shown his commitment and had a remarkable season in 2022/23.

Xhaka has gone through highs and lows in his eventful career at the Emirates, but he can leave with pride after having a stellar campaign that almost led to a Premier League title.

Chris Wheatley of London World reports that Xhaka wants a new challenge and has informed Arsenal of his desire to leave this summer. Mikel Arteta will respect his decision and let him go if an offer between £15m and £20m comes in.

The manager and the player have a great bond, and Arteta has helped Xhaka bounce back after being jeered by the fans during a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace in 2019.

Xhaka has thrived in a more attacking midfield role, scoring five goals and providing seven assists in the Premier League this season. He has been a key player for Arsenal this term, and his departure will leave a big gap in the team. Even though he is not the captain anymore, Xhaka was the heart and soul of Arsenal.
