Granit Xhaka says he feels “really happy” at Arsenal.
The Switzerland international is in his first pre-season with the club after joining from Borussia Monchengladbach and has praised his new team-mates for helping him to settle quickly.

- 'Xhaka can hold the midfield together'
- 'Arsenal fit to me, I fit to the club'
“I’ve been welcomed really well,” Xhaka told Arsenal Player. “My team-mates are great - very friendly, very nice and they know when to have fun and when to be serious. That’s why I feel really happy here.
“I’ve done a lot with Santi Cazorla and Hector, but I have a good understanding with all my team-mates. I think it’s important to have that and that you don’t leave anyone behind.
“I think it always helps when you’re with each other for almost 24 hours a day, when you eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together. You get to know each other better and quicker, and that’s important too.”
