Borussia Monchengladbach have hinted that midfielder Granit Xhaka could be allowed to leave the club in January or at the end of the season, amid rumors that Arsenal, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are tracking the 23-year-old.
Xhaka, who is currently dubbed as the ‘young Schweinsteiger’ after impressing with Gladbach in the Bundesliga, joined the Bundesliga in 2012 and in recent times signed a new long-term contract with Monchengladbach, offering the club all power in potential transfer talks.
With Arsenal showing great interest in the 23-year-old alongside the likes of Bayern Munich and Chelsea, the player’s future has continued to remain a passionately debated subject since the opening of the January transfer window.
Speaking to WDR 2 radio, Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl admitted that the Switzerland international could leave the club if the right offer comes.
“It depends a bit on our own sporting success, it depends on Granit’s own performances and of course it depends on the figures,” he said.
“If they reach a certain dimension, then you could get dizzy. There are always situations in which every club would have to make considerations. It is all in our own hands. As things stand, we are happy to have him with us and hopefully he will stay with us for a long time.”
Xhaka is a versatile and well-rounded midfielder who great experience as a defensive midfielder and ball winner, a primary playmaker and creative force. He is currently valued at £30.5 million.
