Former Bayern Munich Manager Omar Hitzfeld has revealed the Bundesliga champions are monitoring the progress of Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka.
Switzerland international Xhaka joined the Gunners in a £35 million deal from Borussia Monchengladbach last summer, but has largely failed to convince at the Emirates Stadium.
Xhaka’s discipline has been the main bone of contention for many Arsenal fans, with the former Basel man having been sent-off twice while he has been booked in each of his last five matches.
Despite that, Hitzfeld admits that Xhaka is a player that continues to be on the radar of Bayern, hinting he could yet be a transfer target for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
“Bayern certainly has Xhaka on the radar,” he told SportBild.
