Combative midfielder Granit remains a cornerstone of the Arsenal midfield after another productive season in 2020/21 during which he featured 45 times. 

The Switzerland international began his career at Basel, where he won two league titles and the Swiss Cup before joining Borussia Monchengladbach and making 140 appearances across four years for the Bundesliga side.

Since joining the Gunners in 2016 he has lifted four more trophies, winning both the FA Cup and Community Shield twice. The midfielder, who is tough in the tackle and boasts a fearsome long-range shot, has represented his country at two World Cups and two European Championships, most recently at Euro 2020, where he was outstanding in the quarter-final win over France on penalties.

Granit signed a contract extension at the start of the season.
