Granit Xhaka stats: Former Arsenal midfielder hits insane record since leaving the London club

The Swiss midfielder’s resurgence in his professional career has reached an all-time high since he joined Bayer Leverkusen earlier this season. The German giants have been one of the most powerful teams in Europe this season under the leadership of Xabi Alonso and Xhaja has played a huge role in that.

The 31-year-old midfielder left the Emirates last summer after a seven-year spell with the North London giants. The Swiss also played a pivotal role in Arsenal’s title challenge last year which.

Xhaka has won the Bundesliga title and has already reached the finals of the DFB Pokal and Europa League with Leverkusen this year. He has been described as the ‘beating heart’ of Leverkusen as everything goes through the Swiss in the middle of the park.
