Granit Xhaka’s agent José Noguera has confirmed that the Arsenal midfielder has reached an agreement with Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin over a switch a Germany in January.
The Swiss midfielder has endured a torrid time at the north London club this season after a fall out with fans during a league match against Crystal Palace at the Emirates in October.
Xhaka used the F word against supporters who booed him as he went off. He stormed off the tunnel and what followed was him being frozen out of the team for nearly a month in addition to losing the captaincy.
New coach Mikel Arteta had recently heaped praise on him but it appears that he has not had change of heart and still wants out of the Emirates this January.
His agent Noguera has confirmed that the player has reached an agreement with Hertha over a January switch and that Arsenal is aware the player wants out.
“Look, I will say it frankly and honestly, we are in agreement with Hertha BSC and would like to go to Berlin. We have told Arsenal’s club boss Raul Sanllehi and sporting director Edu Gaspar, as well as the new coach Mikel Arteta,” he said.
“Arsenal was informed about all the steps, the player and Hertha are clear. It’s only about the transfer fee of the clubs,” he added.
