Premier League runners-up Arsenal are set to make their first signing of the summer as Arsene Wenger prepares to land Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach, reports the Daily Mail.
The Switzerland midfielder arrived in London for a medical on Thursday night and is ready to complete a move to the Gunners for a fee in the region of £35million.
Although Xhaka is ready for a medical at the north London club, the Daily Mail reports that talks over a fee between the clubs are still ongoing, with the 23-year-old’s wages also still under discussion.
The Swiss international is one of Europe’s most talented prospects and has previously admitted a move to the Premier League would be a dream.
“The Premier League is not my goal, but a childhood dream. It is a dream that could be fulfilled.
“As of now, I am still a Gladbach player,” he added. “That might change in the next weeks, or it might not.”
Wenger’s team failed to make one out-field signing last summer as they ended the Premier League campaign in second-place behind Leicester City, but the Gunners have acted quickly in the transfer window before Euro 2016 as they prepare to launch a title assault ahead of the new season.
