Bayer Leverkusen place Arsenal midfielder Xhaka top of shoppinng list

Arsenal face a new battle to keep hold of Granit Xhaka.

The Switzerland was a serious target for Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma 12 months ago.

And now a year on, Xhaka is wanted by Bayer Leverkusen, says the Mirror.

Bayer are planning for Champions League football next season for the first time in three seasons and are looking to add some experience to their squad.

Xhaka has emerged as a top target, with the midfielder’s impact at Borussia Monchengladbach still highly regarded.

If Xhaka were to leave Arsenal this summer, he would do so with two FA Cup winners’ medals and runners-up medals from the Europa League and EFL Cup.
