Arsenal new boy Granit Xhaka found himself at the wrong end of a prank on the team bus.

Fun-loving Gunners’ teammates moved in while the former Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder was enjoying a nap.

The Swiss international, who cost joined Arsenal £30million in May, was fast asleep when one unidentifiable player held an object in front of the 23-year-old’s nose.

 

 

It failed to wake him up and Xhaka remained granite-faced as fellow midfielder Francis Coquelin captured the whole scene on his phone.

He may have been targeted by his teammates, but Xhaka has a lot to smile about himself after a successfull pre-season with the north London club.

Arsenal have a tricky home Premier League start against Liverpool on Sunday.

They will be without recognised centre backs Gabriel (ankle), Per Mertesacker (knee) and Laurent Koscielny (not fully fit).
