Three European sides are reportedly keen on a January swoop for Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka.

This is according to the report from the Daily Mail which claimed that three clubs want to rescue Granit Xhaka from his nightmare at North London giants Arsenal.

The three European sides are German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund, Premier League outfit Newcastle United and seven-time European champions AC Milan.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka was named the club captain earlier this year after the votes from the players as conducted by manager Unai Emery.

The Swiss international had been acting as the club’s skipper since the exit of Laurent Koscielny in the summer before his appointment was confirmed in September.

His reign as the permanent Arsenal captain didn’t last long before Unai Emery removed him from the role on the back of his conduct towards the club’s fans during a recent league game.

Granit Xhaka used expletives against the fans while he was being subbed off for young Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka during the Premier League game at home to fellow London side Crystal Palace.

The incident overshadowed the game which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Xhaka has missed the last four games in all competitions for the Gunners as a result of the incident.
