THE investigation into Granit Xhaka's suspicious booking against Leeds now involves an alleged criminal conspiracy including the Albanian mafia, according to reports.

Xhaka, 29, received a yellow card in the 86th minute of the Premier League clash at Elland Road in December 2021.

The Swiss midfielder took 20 seconds over a free-kick near the halfway line as the Gunners ticked down the clock leading 4-1 before referee Andre Marriner brandished the card.

A sixth-month inquiry by the FA prompted a National Crime Agency probe.

SunSport revealed a £65,000 bet was placed on Xhaka getting booked in the December 18 match, securing a £250,000 pay out.

Another wager is said to have had £52,000 on him picking up a yellow in the final ten minutes.

And now the Daily Mail state further developments in the investigation have apparently "discovered evidence of significant sums being wagered in cryptocurrency in markets that are not regulated in this country" - with much of that said to be in Albania.

The National Crime Agency are also said to be checking out claims ex-footballer Alban Jusufi placed a big sum on Xhaka to be booked.

Swedish-Albanian Jusufi, 41, was given a five-year ban for match fixing by Swedish courts in 2017 after bribing AIK goalkeeper Kyriakos Stamatopoulos £150,000 to play badly in a derby against IFK Gothenburg.

There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing by Xhaka.

The midfielder represents Switzerland but has Albanian heritage - his older brother Taulant earned 31 caps for Albania's senior national team.

Gunners-man Xhaka was fined £7,630 by Fifa for celebrating by using the Albanian eagle symbol across his chest as Switzerland beat Serbia at the 2018 World Cup.

SunSport has contacted Arsenal and the FA for comment - it is understood they are yet to receive an update from the team looking into the case.

Xhaka is expected to start for Arsenal tonight when they open the gruelling 2022-23 Premier League season away at Crystal Palace.

KIM Kardashian showed off her thin legs and shrinking stomach in a new fashion ad.

And in the process, the Kardashians star raised more concerns over her drastic weight loss.

Kim's latest modeling gig is a spread for fashion designer Stuart Weitzman.

The 41-year-old reality star is featured in ads and on billboards rocking a pair of thigh-high boots and black bodysuit.

On his Instagram page, Stuart teased: "THE TREND OF THE SEASON: Thigh-high boots are the moment. As seen on Kim Kardashian in our Fall 2022 Campaign."

But fans were fixated more on the model's flat tummy than her legs, as concerns over her weight loss grow.

Kim recently gave fans a full glimpse at her tiny waist and thin legs in a frame-hugging black catsuit.

She shared the look on her Instagram Stories, showing off her curves and more as she made her way through the streets.

Kim was seen sporting a skin-tight black shiny catsuit with what looked to be diamond detailing on the cuffs of the sleeves.

She completed the outfit with black boots and sleek, sporty black sunglasses.

The Kardashians star's blonde hair hung loosely around her shoulders.

She walked with a hand on her flat tummy, accentuating her 20 lbs. weight loss.

BIG SPENDER

Her waist isn't the only thing that is shockingly thinner - so is her wallet.

The business woman recently agreed to pay $1.26 million in fees to the Securities and Exchange Commission for pushing a crypto coin without disclosing that she was paid to promote it.

According to the SEC, Kim was reportedly paid $250,000 to post on her Instagram account about EMAX tokens.

The SEC requires that celebrities and influencers make it clear if they are getting paid to promote specific cryptocurrencies to their fans.

In a statement, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler explained: “This case is a reminder that, when celebrities or influencers endorse investment opportunities, including crypto-asset securities, it doesn’t mean that those investment products are right for all investors.

“We encourage investors to consider an investment’s potential risks and opportunities in light of their own financial goals.”

Kim has yet to confirm or deny the allegations amid the ongoing case.
