Saying that all the scrutiny had been slightly overwhelming, Granit Xhaka today revealed that he’s a little freaked out by all the attention he’s getting from Arsenal fans.
The Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder has been strongly linked with the north London side in recent months and while flattered by the interest, he has admitted that the club’s supporters are “laying it on a bit strong”.
“Arsenal are a great club and one that I might be interested in signing for. Still, I haven’t even signed yet and they’re already wondering if I’m gonna be their saviour next year. It’s sorta weird,” said the Swiss international, adding that he’d only consider any potential transfer if Arsenal fans chill out a bit first.
“I get that they might be excited and they’re entitled to feel that way. But I haven’t even received an offer yet and they’re acting like we know each other. I mean, if they’re like this now ”
At press time Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger urged fans to “play it cool and not fucking blow this” for him.
