Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is set to leave after seven years in north London, opening the door for a surprise or two in the transfer market.

The Swiss national captain arrived at the Emirates Stadium in 2016 and has gone on a rollercoaster journey with the Gunners. He almost quit the club in 2019 following a fallout with fans but remained to become a linchpin under Mikel Arteta, winning two FA Cup titles and helping the side qualify for the Champions League this season as a key man in the side.
