Xhaka publicly fell out with supporters recently, and Arsenal have seemingly decided that there is no way back for him.
Emery has not chastised Xhaka in public, but it seems that the Spaniard privately believes that the Swiss international’s time at the Emirates Stadium is up.
Emery is now willing to listen to offers for the 27-year-old, in a move which may please many Arsenal fans.
Xhaka, himself, is said to be accepting of the decision, as he realises he could be fighting a losing battle with supporters now.
Initially Xhaka wanted to force his way back into Arsenal’s plans and prove his worth.
However, as time has gone by, he has reportedly realised that leaving could be best for all parties involved.
Xhaka has not featured for Arsenal since his showing of dissent towards the fans, and it could be that he has already played his last game for the club now.
The Gunners will next be in action against Leicester City tomorrow.
