Xhaka’s days at the Emirates appear to be numbered after he wasstripped of the captaincyin the wake of a furious confrontation with fans.

The midfielder has not played since telling fans to ‘f *** off’ last month andruled himself out of Arsenal’s clashwith Leicester City.

Asked if there had been discussions about selling Xhaka in January, Emery replied: ‘Yes, I asked that question.

‘The club knows the player’s decision at the moment and my decision or my idea about that situation and the circumstances.
