Arsenal summer signing Granit Xhaka has hailed the quality of the club’s attacking midfielders Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
The midfielder who joined the Gunners in May has admitted he is learning from the trio and other senior players at Arsenal.
“I have to admit that in the first few days there was an undeniable nervousness,” he told Swiss outlet Appenzeller Zeitung, as quoted by the Daily Star.
“You can see the players are world class just by the way they pass the ball.
“Ozil, Sanchez and Cazorla for example, are huge personalities. Even though the club has spent more money on me, there’s still a great deal I can learn from them, in every respect.
“Things like their work ethic and ambition are impressive.
“You can’t afford to rest on your laurels at all or you’ll instantly be on the bench.”
The 23 year old also claimed he is already feeling the pressure of playing for a big club like Arsenal and admitted he was prepared for it before joining the club.
“I knew before I arrived that the pressure at a club that challenges for the title grows quickly,” he added. “The season is long, we’ll become stronger with every game.”
Xhaka has featured in all three of the Gunners league games this season and has drawn praise for his performances.
