I’m excited that Wenger actually bought a legit player in Xhaka. Will this open the floodgates to more signings? We’ll see.

Getting XHAKA on my the back of my @Arsenal shirt so when he scores, can point to my shirt and chant: “BOOM XHAKA LAKA”

If any of Arsenal’s CB’a get injured Xhaka can even do a job there

I know I’m late to the party but oath, we’ve finally announced Xhaka. May he be the first of a few. May Ozil be pleased.

#Xhaka a great signing for us. Combative, vocal and sometimes nasty. What we’ve been missing since vieira. A striker and a CB still needed.

Xhaka, Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla, Elneny & Coquelin – Arsenal options in CM strongest for quite some time. Will need all of them. #afc

So happy we got Xhaka, hopefully Wenger continues to spend this summer

I think Giroud will benifit the most from Xhaka’s laser guided long balls.

happy with Xhaka signing. not enough, though. CB and a couple of strikers, one being a new first choice striker, still needed. #AFC
