The 23 years old is also interesting Liverpool; the Merseyside’s now tutored by German man Jorgen Klopp; Klopp has good knowledge of the German league and knows what Xhaka can offer to his side, which is why the interest for Xhaka is on the cards. The Reds only have Lucas Leiva fit for the central midfield position with Henderson still out injured .
Arsenal heavily relies on Francis Couquelin in the Central midfield due to his youthful age and ability to break opponents play; Mikel Arteta has had his best days while Mathieu Flamini is not totally dependable due to his age but has a lot of experience to still deputise for Couquelin when need arises.
