German sports daily Bild now reveals that Wenger has held initial negotiations with both the agent and father of the Gladbach skipper.

Adding to this, the Bundesliga side are said to be holding out for a fee of around £33m for the 23-year-old, who has shined in the German league this term.

Xhaka's existing deal at Gladbach is due to expire in the summer of 2019.
