Arsenal out-of-favour midfielder Granit Xhaka has reportedly begun house-hunting in Italy ahead of what looks an increasingly likely the winter transfer to AC Milan.
The Switzerland international’s future at the Emirates Stadium has quickly come into severe doubt following an incident in the recent match versus Crystal Palace.
Having had his name stated as being subbed off against Palace, the home fans jeered their former captain, which caused him to look to swear at them and goad them before storming down the tunnel.
This has led to Newcastle being linked with Xhaka by the Times, while a report from RSI Sport now claims he seems to be heading to Milan.
The 27-year-old could be a decent joining for the Serie A giants, with RSI Sport implying he’s already preparing for his transfer by looking for a new home.
Xhaka brightened at Borussia Monchengladbach but has struggled in his time at Arsenal, so an exit may now be the best for all involved.
It immediately seemed like the player would struggle to win back the AFC supporters after the row in the Palace game, and few will be too disappointed to see him move on.
