Borussia Monchengladbach captain Granit Xhaka recently revealed in an interview that his dream move would be to England to play in the Premier League.
The Swiss central midfielder has attracted a lot of interest from Premier League clubs because of his exploits in the Bundesliga for Borussia Monchengladbach. The 23-year-old has been solid in his role as a box to box midfielder at the club, and has previously been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal.
Xhaka opened up the doors to English clubs to try and sign him recently, saying that he would love to make a move to the Premier League.
“Everyone has a childhood dream – to me this is England . This does not mean that I have to go away or want . I am enormously happy here , fit for me . But you have to sometimes look at other things,” he said in an interview with sport1.de.
Xhaka is rated at 20 million Euros by transfermarkt.com, but given the fact that he still has significant years left on his contract and the Premier League’s ability to splurge on players, he could fetch a much larger sum. Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City all have their midfield issues, and the Swiss midfielder wouldn’t have much trouble getting into the starting XI.
The Gunners have made a recent signing in Mohamed Elneny to ease the pressure off Francis Coquelin, but would love to have Xhaka as an additional option. Xhaka could also succeed the aging Yaya Toure at Manchester City, or slot in alongside Emre Can at Liverpool.

Liverpool looking at La Liga for Mignolet’s backup
Simon Mignolet has cemented his spot as the number one at Anfield and earned the trust of manager Jurgen Klopp to the extent that his contract is reportedly to be extended.
“He’s not had the easiest situation before I came here, but since I have been here there has been nothing to criticise, absolutely nothing,” his manager had said of the Belgian keeper.
However, Liverpool will still be trying to get their hands on a new goalkeeper in the summer, and according to Spanish publication AS, their primary target has emerged as Real Betis goalkeeper Antonio Adan. The 28-year-old Spaniard is a product of the Real Madrid academy and has had an impressive season for Betis.
The Reds would have to battle it out with Sunderland, as the Black Cats are also reportedly very keen to sign Adan this summer. The keeper is rated at 3 million euros by transermarkt.com, but has a 6 million pound buy-out clause in his contract, not too much for Premier League clubs these days.
Real Madrid duo set to leave — top European clubs eyeing the situation
The Real Madrid midfield duo of James Rodriguez and Isco could be on the move this summer, according to talkSPORT.
Isco has just had a single goal in 28 appearances for Real Madrid this season, and his lack of regular first team football could make him consider a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
Manchester City and Arsenal were very keen on signing Isco in the past, and would jump at the chance to recruit the Spaniard in the summer. The 23-year-old is currently rated at 45 million Euros by transfermarkt.com.
Isco could also follow in the footsteps of former Los Blancos teammate Alvaro Morata, with Serie A giants Juventus interested in the attacking midfielder as well.
James Rodriguez moved from AS Monaco to Real Madrid after his heroics in the 2014 FIFA Worl Cup for an astronomical fee of 80 million Euros. However, he has developed a reputation as a trouble maker after run-ins with the law, which doesn’t sit well with the club officials. James has had an injury plagued season and scored only 5 goals in 20 appearances for Los Blancos.
Manchester United have long been linked with the 24-year-old and would be on high alert, if he were to consider a move away. The Red Devils are reportedly willing to pay a transfer fee in the region of 75 million for the Colombian attacking midfielder.
