Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher aays he has been impressed by Granit Xhaka’s performances so far. The Switzerland international completed a £35m move to the Emirates in May and has been impressive for the club since making his competitive debut a month ago.
The midfielder has already endeared himself to the fans with his two wonderful goals for the club, his performances have been eye catching and Carragher believes Wenger should consider building his midfield around the Swiss international.
“Xhaka scored another thumping goal in Arsenal’s League Cup win at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday but Wenger has been intent on easing him into his team. Only last week, he sang the praises of how good Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin have been in midfield.”
“That might be so but that axis has not been good enough to take Arsenal to where they want to go so why persist with it?”
“After taking one point from their opening two fixtures, Arsenal have re- gathered some momentum and they could really push on with a victory against their bitter rivals.”
“It will be interesting to see if Wenger is prepared to give Xhaka the responsibility of driving his team forward.”
Xhaka has shown he has the quality to play a big role for the club in the future.
The midfielder had to share duties with Francis Coquelin in the opening stages of the season but now has the opportunity to stake a place in Arsenal’s starting xi. He has all the qualities to be an important player for the club in the future.
