Mönchengladbach: Xhaka worth more than 30m euro

VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach have denied receiving an offer from England for Granit Xhaka and insist potential suitors will have to pay up for their skipper.

The Switzerland international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League of late following his eye-catching performances for the Foals.

Arsenal have been mentioned as a possible destination for Xhaka, although Gunners boss Arsene Wenger last week denied they were working on a deal to sign the 23-year-old midfielder.

The FC Basel youth product will reportedly be available for 30 million euros, but Mönchengladbach head coach Andre Schubert claims any interested parties will have to fork out a greater fee than that.

“They need not even send the fax with a 30 million euro offer for Granit Xhaka,” Schubert said.

Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl is expecting the rumour mill to go into overdrive during the off-season, but was adamant that Xhaka had not been the subject of any bids recently.

“I fear it could get very tumultuous regarding rumours in summer,” said Eberl. “There is currently no offer from England. I’ll keep you up to date when the first faxes roll in.”
