Posted on June 16, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Granit Xhaka has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal, the club have confirmed on their official website.

The future of the midfielder was somewhat uncertain after the departure of Arsene Wenger, but the man who has replaced the Frenchman has assured the Swiss international that he will remain an important player for the team.

Xhaka joined Arsenal from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2016, and so far he has made 94 appearances and scored seven goals for the Gunners from his role in central midfield. A relentless player, packing a powerful shot and boasting great passing range and vision, and his new deal is nothing but excellent news for Arsenal as they strive to overcome the difficulties that come with being in transition.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal have agreed a deal worth around €30m with Sampdoria to sign talented central midfielder Lucas Torreira. The report suggests that the Gunners will pay the fee in instalments. The Uruguayan starlet has a release clause of around £22million.

Torreira is just the sort of player that Arsenal now needs to be targeting, young up and coming players with big potential, while also adding quality experienced players.
