Arsenal central midfielder Granit Xhaka has raised question marks over his future with the club in an interview with a publication in his homeland.

In part of the interview with newspaper Tagblatt, Xhaka is quoted as saying: “I’m very ambitious, I want to take the next step, Arsenal does not have to be the last stop,”

Typical interview on an international break

This is typical of what the foreign press tends to do when players are back in their country on international duty. They tend to take their opportunity to stir the pot, as it were and encourage players to say things they probably would not to the British press.

Denis Suarez appeared to laugh off reports about Arsenal wanting to cancel his loan from Barcelona and send him back to Spain.

The rumour about the Gunners being unhappy with the Spaniard originated from some extremely unreliable sources but still managed to pick up pace. The speculations, no doubt, stemmed from the fact that Mesut Ozil has come back into the side and has been playing well, as well as that Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are preferred options to Suarez for manager Unai Emery.

According to Spanish Publication Sport, Arsenal are competing with Manchester City to sign Benfica left-back Alex Grimaldo this summer. The 23-year-old has been in great form this season, scoring three times and producing seven assists in his 42 appearances for the Eagles this season. His form over the last few seasons has attracted interest from a number of Europe’s top clubs.

Grimaldo has a good pedigree

Grimaldo is a product of Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy and was just 15 when he made his debut for the Catalan giants B team back in 2011. Despite being highly-rated, Grimaldo struggled to get into Barcelona’s first team. In fact, he never made a senior La Liga appearance for Barcelona, as he was competing with Spanish full-back mainstay Jordi Alba for a starting spot at the Catalan club.

One of the best in the business

Arsenal have been linked once more with Gabriel Martinelli, according to Brazilian outlet UOL.

Who?

Gabriel Martinelli is a 17-year-old Brazilian forward who plays for Campeonato Paulista (top-flight professional football league in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo) side Ituano. He has had trials with Barcelona and Manchester United since joining Ituano in 2015. So far he has played 25 professional games and scored five goals.

Arsenal are interested in bringing in Ever Banega of Sevilla, according to the Mirror.

As the report claims, manager Unai Emery is a big fan of the Argentinian playmaker and he sees him as a potential replacement for Aaron Ramsey, who will be leaving the club after 11 years to join Juventus in the summer. Emery worked with Banega at two clubs, Sevilla and Valencia, so he certainly knows the traits of this particular player.
