Granit Xhaka has admitted that his future at Borussia Monchengladbach is uncertain with strong links to a possible move to Arsenal in the summer. The Swiss midfielder is hoping that his future destination is decided before the start of the European Championship finals in France next month.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a move away from the club since last summer, with the Gunners big admirers of the midfielder. According to German publication Rheinische Post, the north London club have made an official offer of around €43m (£33.8, $48.8) to bring the midfielder to the Emirates Stadium ahead of the new season.
The Bundesliga club's sporting director Max Eberl has indicated that they have not yet received an official offer, but refused to rule out a potential transfer, after admitting that the midfielder has generated interest from other clubs. Xhaka has expressed a desire to play in the Premier League labelling it a 'childhood dream' and could get his wish if Arsenal meets his valuation set by Monchengladbach.
"It would be good if I knew where my future lies in the new season before the Euros," Xhaka said, as quoted by the London Evening Standard.
"It's not all that helpful if you have to think about stuff like that during the tournament. Thus, I would be pleased if it were to be decided before that," the Swiss midfielder added.
Wenger is likely to make bolstering his midfield one of the main priorities in the summer owing to the potential departures of Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky following the expiry of their contracts on 30 June. Apart from Xhaka, the Gunners have also been linked with a move for Leicester City star N'Golo Kante, who has been one of the standout players of the Premier League this season.
