Arsenal news: Granit Xhaka’s agent, José Noguera has confirmed that that the midfielder has agreed personal terms with Hertha Berlin. The Arsenal star wants to join the Bundesliga club in January and the two sides are now looking to get things done.
Xhaka is not a popular figure among the Arsenal fans and the player reacted once when he was getting booed off at the Emirates. He has since then been focusing on a move away and now the agent has found a club for him. Noguera said:
Look, I will say it frankly and honestly, we are in agreement with Hertha BSC and would like to go to Berlin. We have told Arsenal’s club boss Raul Sanllehi and sporting director Edu Gaspar, as well as the new coach Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal was informed about all the steps, the player and Hertha are clear. It’s only about the transfer fee of the clubs.[via Sky Sports]
Xhaka joined Arsenal in 2016 for a report fee for around ¢35 million. Sky Sports report that the Gunners are looking to recoup as much as possible from the transfer fee they paid.
