‘There’s a lot to come from Xhaka’

Arsene Wenger says Granit Xhaka will make Arsenal’s midfield stronger than ever this season.

The Switzerland international joined in training with his new team-mates at London Colney this week after recovering from his exertions at Euro 2016.

“[Xhaka brings] his passing ability to play through the lines from deep positions, his work rate, and he’s good in the air,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.

“He’s a young boy as well, 23 years old. There’s a lot to come from him. We lost three midfielders: Flamini, Rosicky and Arteta, and numbers-wise we are quite solid in midfield now.

“Elneny had a big impact when he came here, Coquelin was injured for a long time and is back. Cazorla will come back, Wilshere is back… so we are solid in midfield.”
