Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has revealed that he would like to secure a transfer back to Swiss Super League side FC Basel before he ends his football career.
Xhaka talked about his Basel desire when he was asked if he is hoping to play for the club again in an interview with Swiss media outlet Basellandschaftliche Zeitung via the Daily Mail.
The 26-year-old Gunners star further revealed that he’s hoping to copy a previous example from Basel legend Alexander Frei.
Granit Xhaka came through the ranks at the Swiss club before he joined German Bundesliga side Borussia Moenchengladbach in the summer of 2012.
The Swiss international captain went on to spend four successful seasons in Germany before his performances earned him a big money move to the Premier League with the Gunners.
Arsenal paid around £35m for him in the summer of 2016 while Arsene Wenger was still the Arsenal.
Wenger has since been replaced by Unai Emery who penned a three-year contract this summer to emerge as the Arsenal manager.
Xhaka has continued to maintain his status as an important player for the North Londoners.
He is a big part of the recent run of fifteen games without defeat in all competitions.
