Granit Xhaka set for emotional Arsenal farewell



Granit Xhaka, the influential Swiss midfielder who spent seven years at Arsenal, is set for an emotional return to the club. It has been reported that Xhaka has arrived in London and is expected to be in attendance for Arsenal’s match against West Ham at their home ground. During his time with the Gunners, Xhaka played a key role in their pursuit of the Premier League title last season, narrowly missing out on the championship. Despite his significant contributions in helping Arsenal return to the Champions League, Xhaka surprisingly chose to move back to the Bundesliga, joining Bayer Leverkusen. His swift departure denied him the opportunity to bid a proper farewell to his teammates and the devoted fanbase that held him in high regard. However, the upcoming fixture against West Ham presents an opportunity for Xhaka to reconnect with his former colleagues and the supporters who embraced him during his time in North London. Xhaka’s relationship with Arsenal had been strained before Mikel Arteta’s arrival, and was marked by a confrontation with fans during a match against Crystal Palace, ultimately leading to him being stripped of the captaincy.
