Arsenal's Granit Xhaka is like Andrea Pirlo - Switzerland's Johan Djourou

Arsenal new-boy Granit Xhaka has been likened to Andrea Pirlo by Switzerland teammate Johan Djourou.

Djourou, who played for the Gunners until 2014, believes Xhaka has what it takes to be a success in the Premier League and specifically with Arsenal after completing a £30 million move from Borussia Monchengladbach.

He told Sky Sports: "He's got this ability to play very long balls, very precise balls, and I always say he reminds me a bit of Pirlo, the way he plays.

"He's got the ability to play the Arsenal way. He's got this aggressiveness about him that will help him in the Premier League, and he's a great ball player and ball winner as well."

Djourou has also been giving advice to the 23-year-old Xhaka about what to expect from London and Arsenal.

He added: "He asked me a lot of things about London, the club, and I could only say great things about it because I had a great experience there.

"I think that the people at the club are just amazing, and those who run the club as well. I think he's going to have a great time."
