Granit Xhaka’s future at Arsenal remains in doubt as he returned to the club after a successful Interlull with Switzerland.
The midfielder scored in a convincing win over Gibraltar earlier this week, which followed a 1-0 win over Georgia to see his country qualify for Euro 2020.
However, it doesn’t like time away has seen his mood grow in any way conciliatory, and the the removal of the captaincy from him after his outburst during the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace appears to still burn.
Speaking to Swiss outlet SRF, he hinted strongly that he’s prepared to move on, saying, “I have a clear idea as to how things should proceed, and Arsenal know this as well.
“Although I still have a contract with them, I will be glad to return to the club so we can finally sort matters out.
“There will surely be a solution, as I can’t accept what has happened with me.”
Xhaka was fit for our last Premier League game against Leicester, but made it clear to Unai Emery that he was not in the right frame of mind to play.
It remains to be seen if he’ll be in the squad for the visit of Southampton on Saturday.
