Bayern Munich are ready to bring Arsenal midfielder, Granit Xhaka back to Germany just a year after leaving German club, Borussia Monchengladbach, reports UK tabloid, The Sun.
Bayern will be more than familiar with the Swiss international, as he established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Bundesliga during his time with Borussia Monchengladbach.
Xhaka made 108 appearances in Germany’s top tier, finding the back of the net on six occasions and showcasing his talent as a classy and extremely accomplished midfielder.
His good performances earned him a summer move to Premier League giants Arsenal, for what The Sun reports to be a £35million fee.
However, the tabloid believes that he could be on his way back to the Bundesliga. According to the report, the former Bayern manager Ottmar Hitzfeld has revealed that his former employers are long-term admirers of Xhaka.
It is also reported that there are many at the Allianz Arena who believe that Xhaka could develop into a world-class midfielder. He has a long way to go before we can start considering him in that bracket.
