Bellerin and Xhaka both set to leave Arsenal

Arsenal look set to offload both Hector Bellerin and Granit Xhaka in order to fund the signing of Wolves star Ruben Neves.

Midfielder Neves has been lined up for a move to the Emirates Stadium and the Gunners appear to be closing in on a deal.


And it looks likely that there will be outgoings to balance the books in light of the expected new arrival.

Reports in Bellerin’s native Spain suggest he could be on his way back there from north London.

Villarreal’s former Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reported to be keen to be reunited with Bellerin, while Sevilla are also said to be interested in the right-back.

And the Express reports that much maligned midfielder Xhaka is on the verge of completing a move to Roma.

Bellerin has been with Arsenal for a decade and has made 183 Premier League appearances for the club.

Switzerland international Xhaka has been at the Emirates for five years, making 161 league appearances since arriving from Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is determined to revamp the squad following a disappointing season.

The arrival of Neves, who has been outstanding for Wolves, would certainly seem like a step in the right direction ahead of the new campaign.
