Arsenal look set to offer Granit Xhaka to former club Borussia Monchengladbach in January, with Denis Zakaria potentially moving in the other direction. 

Xhaka has not played since his infamous substitution against Crystal Palace on October 27, when supporters booed the then-Gunners captain off the pitch and the Swiss midfielder reacted angrily. 

The 27-year-old was then stripped of the captaincy by manager Unai Emery, and with a way back to the first-team looking increasingly unlikely, Xhaka could return to the club he left in 2016 come the January transfer window, according to the Mirror.

Meanwhile, international team-mate Zakaria has flourished for Gladbach this season, during their rise to the top of the Bundesliga. 

The 22-year-old midfielder is attracting interest from a host of European clubs, but the Gunners could have the edge if Xhaka is included in any deal, though it is likely Zakaria would only move next summer.
