Club Director Finally Speak Out On Transfer Offer From Arsenal For Midfield Genius

Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.

Borussia Monchengladbach chief has claimed reports linking his club captain Granit Xhaka with a move to Arsenal is ridiculous, according to Goal.

The 23 year old has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates with Wenger reportedly prepared to pay as much as £37m for his services next summer. It was also claimed the Bundesliga club would sell their star player this month should they receive the right offer but the club’s Sporting director Marx Eberl has revealed that he is surprised by reports claiming Arsenal have submitted a huge bid for the midfielder. He also assured the club’s fans that he hasn’t received any offer and the captain will be staying at the club until the summer.

“There are no offers, there is no figure that I have seen in black and white and there is no contact with Arsenal,” he told

“I would like to say clearly once again at this point: Granit Xhaka wants to stay in Monchengladbach and we do not want to sell him.

“He is a super player for us and will contest the second half of the season here. As for the figures I have seen floating round, they amuse me.”

Xhaka is an important member of Borussia Monchengladbach squad and has featured in 23 games for his club this season.
