Granit Xhaka is having his most productive season with Arsenal since arriving at the Emirates in 2016. The Switzerland international has excelled alongside Thomas Partey, and has shown his utility when he is allowed to relax in a defensive role.
However, it is reported that Bayer Leverkusen is close to reaching an agreement to bring the midfielder back to the Bundesliga, where he played for Borussia Monchengladbach. That forced Arsenal to look for more reinforcements for the midfield.
Smith Rowe is regularly used in the attacking midfielder position, but Football London reports the 22-year-old has Trained as a central midfielder.
Smith Rowe’s potential is unquestionable, and Arsenal have reason to hand him the No. 10 shirt. But injuries and a lack of game time have slowed his development.
At the moment, Arsenal are also targeting many high-class midfielders, emerging as West Ham’s Declan Rice and Brighton’s Moisés Caicedo. However, it will not be easy for the Gunners in the face of Man United’s competition.
