Reports are out claiming that Granit Xhaka is looking forward to playing with Mohamed Elneny at Arsenal.
Xhaka progressed through the youth ranks of Elneny’s former side Basel, and the 23-year-old says he is looking forward to playing with the Egyptian.
“I know him by name, but when I went to Monchengladbach he came to Basel,” he told Arsenal Player.
“My brother played with him and I had heard of him before I came here. In Switzerland we produce very good young players and many of these players have come to England. That’s very good.”
