Pires, Xhaka and Depay all feature in Arsenal Monday news and gossip

Here is the daily roundup of Arsenal news gossip and transfer talk from icfootballnews.

Arsenal star Granit Xhaka has hinted that he is ready to leave the Emirates and take the next step in his career.

Since moving to the Emirates back in 2016 in a deal that was worth £35 million for Arsenal, the Swiss midfielder has not made the kind of impact that many Gunners fans had hoped and has been constantly slated for his performances, with many claiming that he is too slow for the Premier League.

However, despite going against many this season, Gunners boss Unai Emery has stuck with the midfielder and has made him an integral part of the squad, with his performance levels taking a step in the right direction.

But during the International break he has fuelled speculation that he may look to leave the club in the near future when he admitted that he may look to take that next step in his career as staying at Arsenal is not his ‘last stop’

When asked about his Arsenal career, Xhaka told Swiss outlet Tagblatt: “I’m very ambitious, I want to take the next step.

“Arsenal does not have to be the last stop.”

Arsenal legend Robert Pires has claimed that midfielder Memphis Depay would want a move back to Manchester United in the summer transfer window, to redeem himself.

United decided to offload Depay in 2017 after the winger failed to make the kind of impact that many expected after his big money move to Old Trafford, but the Dutchman has re-established himself in France with some eye-catching patches of form and his performances have actually linked him with a move back to the Premier League.

It is no secret that boss Unai Emery is keen to add a bit more width to his side in the summer, despite many believing that he already has a top-class attack, while United have been keeping an eye on Depay since he left the club, believing that he would eventually come good.

But Pires has admitted that Depay would love a chance to redeem himself at Old Trafford after failing so miserably first time around.

‘I think Depay wants to come back to the Premier League and he feels he has unfinished business in England,’ Pires told Bwin.

‘It didn’t work out for him at Manchester United and Depay is a very proud player.

‘He perhaps feels he wasn’t given a chance to perform and earn the right to stay longer considering he was so young and showed glimpses of undoubted potential.

‘Depay might want to return to Manchester United or he might be motivated to prove them wrong by performing for one of their rivals in the Premier League.’
