You don't get a second chance at first impressions.

Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka - recognisable as one of the eleven disinterested Swiss men that slumbered their way through an Aviva friendly in March - has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League this year, with Arsenal and Liverpool mentioned as potential destinations.


The former option is now a reality: Xhaka has signed with Arsenal. Not that this news has been broken by the Arsenal website. Nope, the official announcement has been upstaged, as images of Xhaka's modelling an Arsenal shirt were leaked online:




The images were reportedly leaked online by Xhaka's girlfriend, and Arsenal are said to be a bit annoyed by the leaking of the images:

Not a great start, then, to piss off your bosses on your first day. That said, if Xhaka performs to the level he is capable of, Arsenal will not be long forgiving him. Xhaka is a tenacious defensive midfielder who is as comfortable on the ball as he is furiously hunting it down.

Expectation is understandably high, then for a defensive midfielder called Granit.
