Arsenal fans react as Xhaka agrees new deal

Xhaka agrees new deal at Arsenal

Granit Xhaka has been a divisive figure in north London since he joined the Gunners in 2016, and was rumoured to be joining Roma this summer. However, a potential deal fell through over a failure to agree on a fee, and as a result it seems as though Xhaka has now signed a new deal at Arsenal.

In a complete U-turn, it was the Swiss international who captained the side in the absence of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Brentford on the opening day of the season, almost two years on from being stripped of the captaincy after his antics against Crystal Palace.

His new deal will see him remain at the club until 2025, representing a two-year extension to his current deal at The Emirates, and will see Xhaka remain a Gunner until he is 32.

Arsenal fans react

It is safe to say that the decision to offer the Swiss a new contract was met with a mixed reaction.

Is it the right move, or will Arsenal come to regret their decision?
