Newcastle United’s pursuit of outcast Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka could have hit a snag.

Xhaka is currently out of favour at Arsenal after hitting out at fans during the draw with Crystal Palace last month.

Newcastle were reported to be interested in a move for the Swiss midfielder, but according to the Sunday Mirror Arsenal may use Xhaka as part of a deal to sign his fellow countryman Denis Zakaria from German club Borussia Monchengladbach.
