Granit Xhaka’s Switzerland team-mate Johan Djourou has compared the new Arsenal signing to veteran Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo.
Johan Djourou told Sky Sports News HQ:
“He’s got this ability to play very long balls, very precise balls, and I always say he reminds me a bit of Pirlo, the way he plays.
“He’s got the ability to play the Arsenal way. He’s got this aggressiveness about him that will help him in the Premier League, and he’s a great ball player and ball winner as well.”
