The Swiss midfielder was the subject of transfer speculation in early summer, and Roma are believed to be pushing hard to get his signature. However, the clubs could not agree on a fee and therefore Xhaka returned to training in the Arsenal colors.

In a 180-degree turn, it was the Swiss international who captained the team in the absence of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during Arsenal’s 2-0 loss to Brentford on the season opener, nearly two years after be stripped. of the captaincy after his ancient against Crystal Palace.

And now it appears that Xhaka will remain with the club until 2025, signing a two-year extension to his current contract that would expire in 2023. This means that the 28-year-old midfielder will, if he sees his deal, he will remain at the club until he is 32. years.

Another in?

With Thomas Partey currently injured, Arsenal have few midfield options. Currently, Xhaka, Elneny and the new Albert-Sambi Lokonga are the only options Mikel Arteta can turn to. With that in mind, it is not surprising to have seen the Gunners linked to people like Manuel Locatelli, Yves bissouma Y Ruben neves.

However, none of these moves have occurred and with Arsenal not competing in European football this season, it seems unlikely that any of them will make it to North London now that Xhaka is staying.
