Former Manchester City forward Rodney Marsh has predicted on social networking site Twitter that Granit Xhaka will be a success at Arsenal this season.

Xhaka joined Arsenal from German club Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer transfer window.

According to The Daily Mail, the Gunners had to pay Monchengladbach a transfer fee of £35 million in order to secure the services of the 23-year-old midfielder.

Former City forward Marsh has predicted on Twitter that Xhaka will be for Arsenal this season what N'Golo Kante was for Leicester City during the 2015-16 campaign.

Kante was one of the best midfielders in the Premier League last season and played a key role in the Foxes’ title triumph.

The 25-year-old’s performances last season saw him earn a move to Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

According to BBC Sport, the London outfit had to pay Premier League rivals Leicester a transfer fee in the region of £30m for the France international.
