Arsenal are open to offers for under-fire midfielder Granit Xhaka, according to the Daily Mail.

The 28-year-old’s form has been poor this season and has been touted as one of the reasons why the Gunners are not faring well on the field this season. Xhaka was red-carded in Arsenal’s most recent 1-0 defeat against Burnley, with some suggesting that his three-match ban may actually be a good thing for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Xhaka has been a first-team regular since he joined the Gunners in 2016, though his performances have been inconsistent. He was expected to leave the club last summer after controversially reacting angrily to Arsenal fans following their 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace in October 2019.

Following the incident, Xhaka was stripped of the captain’s armband by Unai Emery. Arsenal gave Xhaka a second chance following that incident, but it appears that they may now be rethinking that following his latest examples of ill-disciplined behaviour.

He was dismissed with half an hour to play against Burnley. Had he remained on the field, the Gunners may have stood a chance of finding an equalizer against the Clarets, who themselves entered the game in poor form.
