Does this photo really show Granit Xhaka in an Arsenal kit?

Pictures of Granit Xhaka in the new Arsenal kit have emerged today.

Talksport pundit Stan Collymore has taken to social networking site Twitter to post a picture of Granit Xhaka apparently posing in the new Arsenal kit.

Rumours have been gaining momentum in recent weeks concerning Xhaka's potential arrival in North London, and the pictures released today, supposedly by the Swiss star's girlfriend, seem to confirm that a deal has been done, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Collymore uploaded the below picture to his Twitter account:



The Gunners have been crying out for a midfielder in the mould of the 23-year-old Switzerland international, and it seems as though Arsène Wenger has moved early to rectify that squad gap.

The North London outfit are famous for letting big transfer deals rumble on throughout the summer, so the news of the apparent signing of Xhaka will make pleasant hearing for Arsenal fans.

Arsenal's spending is not expected to stop here however, with their interest in Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata increasing by the day. Several news outlets have suggested the Gunners are set to make a £50 million bid for the Spanish ace.

With many departures expected too at the Emirates, it it sure to be an exciting summer for Arsenal fans.
