A selection of Arsenal fans have reacted to the speculation that midfielder Granit Xhaka could favour a return to the Bundesliga.

The 28-year-old has been the Gunners’ most consistent midfielder this term, but he has had disciplinary issues and recently gifted Burnley with a goal in a 1-1 draw.

Xhaka’s current deal with the north London side expires in June 2023, and Sky Germany reports that he is aiming for a return to the Bundesliga.

Hertha Berlin were eager to land his signature in January last year, and it is claimed that they could be a possible destination for the Swiss.

The midfielder has won over a section of the club’s faithful with his displays this term, but some believe that the club should still cash in on his services.

Here are a few reactions on Twitter.

Xhaka has divided opinion among the Gunners fans over the years, but he remains a vital player under manager Mikel Arteta.

He was keen on making the switch to Hertha last year, but Arteta played a key role in convincing him to stay.

The Gunners are actively searching for a new midfielder, and they have been linked with Yves Bissouma and Guido Rodriguez lately.

A summer signing is likely to accompany Thomas Partey in the centre of the park, which would drop Xhaka to the bench.

He may not welcome the prospect of playing a back-up role, which may pave the way for a summer exit.
