The agent of Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka reveals that his client has agreed terms to join Hertha Berlin in January, with only a transfer fee to be agreed now.

The agent of Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has revealed that the Switzerland international has agreed terms to join Hertha Berlin in January.

Xhaka's future at the Emirates Stadium was plunged into doubt when he reacted angrily to being booed by his own fans while walking off the pitch earlier this season, leading to him being stripped of the club captaincy.

The 27-year-old has since returned to the first team set-up and new boss Mikel Arteta appeared to hand him a lifeline at the club earlier this week.

However, agent Joel Noguera has confirmed that Xhaka has now agreed personal terms with Hertha Berlin, leaving only a transfer fee between the two clubs to be thrashed out.

"Look, I will say it frankly and honestly, we are in agreement with Hertha BSC and would like to go to Berlin," Noguera told German outlet BLICK.

"We have told Arsenal's club boss Raul Sanllehi and sporting director Edu Gaspar, as well as the new coach Mikel Arteta.

"Arsenal was informed about all the steps, the player and Hertha are clear. It's only about the transfer fee of the clubs."

Hertha are thought to be preparing a bid of around £21m for Xhaka, who previously played in the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach.
