It’s fair to say that the Arsenal fans have fallen out with Granit Xhaka.
The midfielder is now public enemy number one after his antics against Crystal Palace. He reacted angrily to the reception he received to being substituted, and his actions have led to him being stripped of the captaincy.
Now he’s being linked with a move away from the Emirates, with the Times claiming that Newcastle could offer him a route out of North London.
From a Newcastle perspective, this looks unlikely. He’s on a lot of money and will most likely go abroad.
However, some Arsenal fans don’t seem to be bothered about where he goes, as long he just goes. Xhaka has been an Arsenal player since 2016, costing £35 million. And a lot of Gunners supporters think the links with Newcastle are pretty funny, describing a move to St James’ Park as his ‘level’.
Are we Xhaka’s level? I don’t think so. For all his woes, there’s certainly a talented player in there. His time at Arsenal has been pretty anticlimactic, but a move to Newcastle seems completely out the realms of possibility.
But at least we gave the Arsenal fans a laugh, they need something to cheer them up…

I don’t think Bruce wants a Swiss Jon Jo Shelvey
