Would it be a great service from Arsenal point of view? I believe YES! Granit Xhaka has been an excellent servant, so if he wishes to leave this summer, that would be amazing. We can try to get Ødegaard with us next summer, indication either Aouar, Bissouma/Fekir we currently have Smith Rowe.

Xhaka has actually divided viewpoint amongst the Gunners fans for many years, but he stays an essential gamer under manager Mikel Arteta.
He was keen on making the switch to Hertha last year, but Arteta played an essential role in encouraging him to stay.
The Gunners are actively searching for a brand-new midfielder, and they have been related to Yves Bissouma and Guido Rodriguez lately.
A summer season finalizing is most likely to accompany Thomas Partey in the centre of the park, which would drop Xhaka to the bench.
He might not welcome the possibility of playing a back-up function, which may pave the way for a summer exit.
