Arsenal transfer news: Declan Rice to undergo medical today as Granit Xhaka exit confirmed

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Declan Rice will undergo his Arsenal medical today ahead of his £105million transfer to Mikel Arteta’s side.

Writing on Twitter last night, Romano said: “Arsenal have booked medical tests for Declan Rice on Friday. Club record signing will complete tests tomorrow.

“Documents being checked and set to be signed within 24 hours between #AFC and West Ham. Club record deal now finally set to be officially completed.”

 

Xhaka departs

Arsenal announced that Granit Xhaka has left the club for Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen.

As football.london reported earlier this week, Xhaka’s exit will land the Gunners £21.5million, a more than fair price considering he is now 30 years old. After the move was confirmed, Mikel Arteta made it clear how much he appreciates the Swiss international and everything he gave for the club.
