German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin are interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka in the January transfer window.
According to Sky Germany, Hertha Berlin coach Jurgen Klinsmann is looking for a holding midfielder and they are targeting Xhaka whose future is uncertain after a run-in with the Arsenal fans.
Also, Sky Germany reported that Hertha Berlin who are 13th in the table, are hoping to convince Xhaka and Arsenal to strike a deal with a “financially sensible package”.
Xhaka was stripped as Arsenal captain in October by former boss Unai Emery, after confrontation with fans of the club in a 2-2 home draw against Crystal Palace.
The Switzerland international swore at the fans when he was subbed off against Palace which did not go down well with the fans.
He later issued a half-hearted apology last claiming he had “reached boiling point” because of abuse directed at his family.
However he has since returned to the team and featured in the Europa league defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt and the 3-1 away win against West Ham United.
He signed for Arsenal from Borussia Mönchengladbach for a fee of around £35 million, and has gone on to win the FA Cup and Community Shield.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
