Arsenal up price as Xhaka pushes for Hertha Berlin move

Arsenal have upped their asking price for Granit Xhaka.

Hertha Berlin have been in talks for almost a month about a deal for the Switzerland international. Indeed, it's suggested Xhaka has agreed personal terms with Hertha.

While Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has stated he wants the midfielder to stay, BZ says Xhaka's preference is to leave for Hertha.

As such, Arsenal have now upped their valutation from €25m to €30m to sell.

"Granit Xhaka has agreed with Hertha. He asked those responsible for Arsenal and also Mikel Arteta for approval to move to Berlin," confirmed Xhaka's advisor José Noguera in an interview with Fussball Transfers a fortnight ago.
