Another name emerges as swap option for Roma to land Xhaka

AS Roma is keen to sign Granit Xhaka for Jose Mourinho as they prepare to begin the Portuguese’s reign with a good squad.

The Romans have just made him their latest manager as they look to rival Italy’s top teams for Serie A.

Mourinho knows he can get top players in the Premier League and has already spotted one at Arsenal.

He has been impressed by watching Xhaka play and wants to add him to his new squad.

Gazzetta reports that Roma has already seen an offer for his signature rejected and they are expected to return with an improved one.

They were expected to add Amadou Diawara to their latest offer as a sweetener in the bid.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for him before and it looked like the perfect choice for the Serie A side.

However, the report is also claiming that they are open to adding another Arsenal target if it would help.

It says they could add Turkish winger, Cengiz Under.

Under spent this campaign on loan at Leicester City and was underwhelming, but Arsenal still thinks he can make an impact at the Emirates.

    CASH only in excess of £25m and nothing else!
    Gone are the days we settle for less/mediocres
    The Romans should keep their players, we are no longer a dumping ground!

      You say ‘gone are the days…’ like up you are Vinai. Watch us sell him for 15mil. We are so poor it feels like our employees are working against the club. How can we leave it too late for players to renew. Tomorrow we will net Laca go for free again. Same old story repeating every year.

    Cash only!

    @Gogo
    I don’t think we’ll allow him go for as low as £15m as I heard we already rejected a bid from the Romans in the region of £18.5m.

    Yes truly I agree with you we have a poor team of recruitment staff at our disposal who are not proactive in dealing with players contract situations but I want to believe we should be “turning the corner” on that front considering recent events and the atmosphere around the club now.

    Better days ahead I hope.

    Cash pls! No swap deals. Arsenal shouldn’t even consider a swap deal. Those two are no better than what we already have. Bring in players that will cause immediate effect( positive).

    Knowing how useless our board is, I would not be at all surprised if they agreed to a Xhaka/Mikhi swap deal!
