Final details being ironed out for Arsenal star to finally move

Granit Xhaka is closing in on his move to AS Roma this summer with a new report claiming that the deal just needs a few final details to be ironed out before it is sealed.

The Swiss midfielder has emerged as a transfer target for the Italians in this transfer window and they have been in talks with Arsenal over signing him for much of it.

There has been some quietness with regards to news about the transfer for some days now, but it has now been revealed that things are at a very advanced stage.

Sky Sports Italia via the Daily Mail claims that Roma has finally come up with the amount Arsenal has demanded and they will complete his signing soon.

The report says things are so advanced that the midfielder is expected to join up with his new teammates for their preseason tour of Portugal next week.

The midfielder has long agreed on personal terms with the Italian club, which would tie him to them until 2025.

It was left for both clubs to reach an agreement before the transfer is complete and that breakthrough has finally come.

Xhaka will leave Arsenal with a reputation both good and bad, but this is probably the right time to leave the Emirates.

    Last year would have been better, but overall I think the move is best for Arsenal and Xhaka.

    I wish him well after the move, and hopefully we can add a midfielder better suited to the pace and demands of the Premier League

    Sorry but I refuse to talk humbug about this player and wish him well. He has dragged us down for his whole time here and been a terrible weakness, stopping any fluidity and pace in midfield.
    I cannot WAIT til he leaves and even tomorrow would be still five years too late for me.

    I will be sorry to see Xhaka leave. However, I feel the time is right.
    My worry is who the “Brains Trust” will bring in to replace him, and any other additions they might make.

    The three players I would like to see Arsenal bring in are:

    Neves, since Wolves seem to be going thru a clear out sale, I think this is achievable (if we do not dither).

    Bissouma, because, In my view, we need another solid defensive midfielder who is EPL ready. This will be difficult because of the on-going Ben White fiasco. But with the correct fee and maybe some Arsenal players included in the deal, it might be possible.

    I do not include Maddison amongst those I would like to see us get. My concern here is that Leicester are willing to part with him. My guess is something has happened at that club that makes him expendable.
    I worry that we will waste a lot of money again on player with problems.

    Finally, and probably the hardest to get; is a proper goal scorer. We might have to leave this until next season. I would rather we persevered with our current crop of forwards than bring someone in for the sake of it (Like Tammy Abrahams).

    Incidentally, I cannot believe the two goal-keepers we are reportedly chasing.
    If Arteta is desperate to buy one – I recommend Sam Johnstone. Ramsdale is only 6 foot tall, which I think is small for a keeper these days. Johnstoone is 6’3.
