Grant Xhaka’s Arsenal contract renewal has been confirmed by owner Stan Kroenke in the club’s matchday programme, writes JAKE LAMBOURNE.
Owner Stan Kroenke and son Josh spoke of Arsenal’s transfer business in the programme, with Football.London obtaining their message.
They said: “We know there is much work ahead to get back to where we need to be but are confident about what can be achieved by this great club and our people.
“We are building a squad, rich in young talent, much of it developed through our wonderful academy.
“It is clear looking across Europe that we are dealing with a difficult transfer market due to the impacts of the pandemic but at the time of writing, are delighted to have signed Nuno Tavares, [Albert] Sambi Lokonga and Ben White.
“We have also renewed the deals of Kieran Tierney and Emile Smith Rowe, both on a long-term basis.
“These are all young players that we are convinced can develop further and have a bright future with us.
“They are supported by a strong group of more experienced players including Granit Xhaka, who has signed an extended contract.
“This is an important step in terms of maintaining balance and stability in the squad.
“In the meantime, the transfer negotiating team has been working hard behind the scenes to improve the squad further.”
