Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has dropped a huge hint at Granit Xhaka’s future at the club. The Swiss who looked set for a return to Germany to join Hertha Berlin on loan prior to the Manchester United victory may yet stay at the Emirates.
In a tweet, Arteta was quoted saying “I think he’s going to stay”
Arteta on Xhaka: "I think he’s going to stay. I really like him. If we get him on board, he can be a tremendous player for us."
Has Xhaka given Arteta assurances he will stay at Arsenal?
"He did, yes."
