Granit Xhaka insists new Arsenal signings Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes have added ‘a lot of quality and mentality’ to the Gunners’ dressing room.

Mikel Arteta signed Brazilian forward Willian on a free transfer after he left Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea.

Magalhaes, meanwhile, completed a £23million move to the Emirates from Lille.

Both Willian and Magalhaes have enjoyed promising starts to their Arsenal careers, helping the Gunners win their first three games of the 2020-21 season.

Xhaka, who joined Arsenal four years ago from Borussia Monchengladbach, has praised the club’s summer transfer activity and says Willian and Magalhaes have both brought ‘quality’ to the team.

‘With Willian and Gabriel, Arsenal brought a lot of quality and mentality into the dressing room,’ Xhaka told the Swiss Telegraphic Agency.

‘Willian knows how to win titles. And the extension with [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang was an important signal for all of us – we want to go back to the Champions League.’
