Arsenal are set to sell Granit Xhaka in January after the former captain fell out with fans last month.

The former Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder has been left on the sidelines at his own request after he lashed out at the Emirates faithful during the draw with Crystal Palace, but he might be staying in the Premier League.

The Telegraph have reported that the 27-year-old has been told good things about the Toon by his Switzerland team-mate Fabian Schar.

Schar, who is a fan favourite at St James Park, seems keen for Xhaka to join him in the Newcastle as his compatriot looks to boost his stance with the national team ahead of Euro 2020.

The former Basel man recently broke his silence in an interview with Swiss publication Blick, in which he outlined his plans for the future.

Xhaka said: “You could say things have been a bit frantic.

“Last week in particular was a very special emotional experience for me.

“But I’m doing very well again, I’ve trained well this week and am looking forward to my next assignments.

“In the club and of course on the national team.”

On the incident in question, the controversial midfielder spoke about his sadness, and why his reaction was justified.

He added: “When my shirt number lit up on the fourth official’s panel and our own fans broke into gleeful jubilation, that hit me very hard and really upset me.

“It was very hurtful and frustrating.

“I can’t understand a reaction like that even now, especially the vehemence of it and the extreme hostility directed against me.

He later added: “Insulting and swearing at your own captain will cause upset and a bad atmosphere for the team you are actually supposed to be supporting.

“That makes no sense to me and weakens the team's spirit.”
