Wenger wrote:“Granit Xhaka is an exciting young player, already with good Champions League and Bundesliga experience.
"We have been watching him for a long time now and he is a player who will add quality to our squad. We wish Granit a good Euro 2016 with Switzerland and look forward to welcoming him to Arsenal ahead of next season.”

People on twitter asking Arsenal to announce Xhaka already. Their response?

I'm more shocked that the Arsenal twitter account showed some signs of personality.

Please take care good of the boy. It's sad that he has left Gladbach, but I wish him all the best for his new endeavours. *snif*

A pivot of Elneny and Xhaka. After years and years of the small guys, we've got a 90's Arsenal midfield again.

Is the Premier League similar to the Bundesliga in many ways?
I don’t think it’s the same. In Germany you can play aggressively but the referee will always blow his whistle, but in England that’s not the case. That’s better for me.
How would you describe your playing style?
I like to play football. I’m an aggressive player and also a leader. I’m only 23 but I captained a good team in Germany.

So its true that we scouted him 30 times in a season?

Ever so often, there is this small nugget of insight into how thorough this club tends to be, which can be admired to some extent. I appreciate well informed decisions.

Gonna read that blick article now.

I happen to be in Switzerland at the moment :-)

Don't you fret Hansie, my heart and soul has been with the Mannschaft for over a decade now :-)

And stop picking on articles, it's bloody difficult even for natives - Ausländer might as well give up on it.

Some more quotes courtesy Arseblog:
“I had to keep my mouth shut for the last couple of days, which usually don’t like to do.”

“I have made two great choices: one is Arsenal and the other is Switzerland. Now I have peace of mind.”

“Many people forget that I am 23 years old. I am not 30, I am not perfect and I will make mistakes.”

“I always liked Arsenal’s way of playing football. Simply nice to look at.”

“English is not a problem for me, but I still have to improve.”

“I am very happy that my wife is coming with me to London. It’s important to have your beloved ones around you, for the good times and for the bad times.”

Xhaka sounds very confident. Seems the type not tolerate much bs either.

Stick him, Coquelin and Wilshere in a team and the accusations of us being a soft touch would probably end.
