Arsenal offered the chance to sign impressive Serie A midfielder

Arsenal has been offered Amadou Diawara by AS Roma as a part of their bid to sign Granit Xhaka this summer.

The Italians want the Swiss midfielder and they have been in talks with Arsenal over completing his transfer for some time now.

Both clubs are struggling to reach an agreement over his market value and it seems that Roma will have to become creative to meet Arsenal’s demands.

Il Romanista reports that Roma is looking to offload some of their current options and they have offered Diawara to the Gunners.

The Guinean has been linked with a move to the Emirates before now, but it isn’t clear if Mikel Arteta still wants a move for him.

The report adds that if he isn’t included in the transfer, then the Italians would need to sell him and a few other players before they can make an improved offer to the Gunners.

The likes of Manuel Locatelli and Houssem Aouar have remained the top priority targets for Arteta so far.

However, at 23, the Spanish boss can shape Diawara into the type of midfielder that he wants.

Diawara has played 58 matches in the two seasons he has spent in Rome including 28 last season.

    Nothing impressive about him

  2. CorporateMan says:

    Another player who will be at AFCON for several weeks.
    No thanks!

      CM, and unfortunately injury prone.

    it’s starting to worry me that this lipstick on a pig bang average oft-injured lightweight keeps getting bandied about…the only way I’m willing to accept this move is if it’s the only stumbling block when it comes to getting the Xhaka deal over the line…if that truly is the case I’ll take two of him so long as I never have to see the Swiss miss in the kit again

    Trade in part is weak and pointless.

    Better idea is sell Diawara and use that money to add to Xhaka bid.

    Why would we ever want a Roma castoff they don’t want?

    Xhaka is going nowhere from what I hear and rightly so. Whether you like him or not he is a good midfielder and Arsenal are a better team when he plays. The stats speak for themselves. By the way he was one of the standout players in the European Cup but don’t let the facts get in the way of your prejudice. Same goes for Bellerin. Get a life, get off the couch and go and do something useful. You walk around in a state of discombobulation and you believe the bollocks posted by pretend journalists that just quote each other. All speculation and reaction -seeking dross. If all the crap we read is true we would struggle to field a team let alone win a game during the AFCON.

    So why not keep our own Willock instead of taking another average midfielder that Roma want to offload?

    Tired of dead players ending up at Arsenal.

    No thanks. We would rather keep Xhaka.

      I see you are still using gunnerfor life after i respectfully asked you to use another name ,as i have been using gooner4life for my postings for years. and don’t want other users to be confused .because i don’t agree with most of your comments. and don’t want others to think they are from me.

      1. Mambo says:

        Gonner4life, get over it there is clearly a differ.

  8. Gabriel says:

    Why should we exchange Xhaka for an I inferior player. Should not be given any consideration at all

  9. apangu iddi amin says:

    If Diawara is good then why do they need Xaka? we cant sell good player for average one.
