Arsenal’s only major transfer activity this summer has been the signing of midfielder Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach.
The 23-year-old, who arrived at Emirates Stadium in a £35 million move, made his debut for the Gunners in the 2-1 win over MLS All-Stars on Thursday. The Switzerland international played only 45 minutes of the game, but his performance left many Arsenal fans salivating at the prospect of seeing him on a regular basis next season.
The Gunners have not really been busy in transfer market till now, but it looks like they have found a real gem in
58 attempted passes
94.2 per cent pass completion rate

Xhaka is such a good signing. Arsenal use the full backs more than most teams and he always finds them in space.

Wenger on Xhaka: “He did adjust very well. His passing was clean & technically he did well. I believe his first game was encouraging.” #afc

Xhaka might be the only player in our squad capable of reading Mesut’s vision. What an amazing talent we’ve just get.

Just caught up on the game. Xhaka exactly what we’d hoped. Holding absolutely superb as well. Massively impressed.
