Albanian footballer, Granit Xhaka has tested positive with Covid-19.

Along with him, his friend Folarin Balogun also tested positive for coronavirus.

Xhaka's absence is a special blow for Arsenal, as they no longer have the opportunity for midfield.

Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey are in the Africa Cup of Nations in January, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles has left to join Roma on loan.

This means that Albert Sambi Lokonga is the only central midfielder suitable for Arsenal, with Charlie Patino./ 21Media
