Hertha Berlin make bid for Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka

Hertha Berlin have tabled a bid for Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka.

The Switzerland captain has already agreed personal terms with the Bundesliga outfit, which have offered €25m to the Gunners to sell, says Blick.

However, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has stated he is reluctant to lose Xhaka midway through the season.

Arteta's claims have been dismissed by Xhaka's camp, which believe it's all a tactic to drive up his price.

His agent, Jose Noguera, said last week: "We agreed with Hertha, he has already asked for approval from coach Arteta and club boss (Raul) Sanllehi."

But for the moment, everything is in limbo given Arteta's comments.
