Jack Wikshere has praised the signing of Granit Xhaka. And he believes he will be a hit for Arsenal in the coming season.
The Swiss joined Arsenal for £30 million from Borussia Mochengladbach, he made 36 appearances for the bundesliga club.
With Arsenal looking to win the EPL title, Wilshere believes Xhaka will be a star for the Gunners.
“I’ve played against him a few times at youth level for England and also for the first team with England, so I know him quite well,” Wilshere told the official Arsenal website.
“I’ve always thought he was a good player, he’s very strong and has got a good left foot.
“He’s a leader, he can hold the midfield together and can get things going from back to front. He’s a good signing.”
Xhaka could make his debut for Arsenal when they take on the MLS All-Star team on Thursday in San Jose.
