Italian club preparing to make an offer for divisive Arsenal man

AS Roma hasn’t given up on their pursuit of Granit Xhaka, and they could return for the midfielder this month.

Jose Mourinho targeted the Switzerland international last summer as the former Chelsea boss attempts to take Roma to the Champions League.

Arsenal didn’t want to sell him, and they offered him a new deal instead.

That was enough to push Roma away, but not for long as the midfielder remains on their radar.

Calciomercato says Roma has been given new hope that they can sign the former Borussia Monchengladbach man as Arsenal pursues a deal for Arthur Melo.

The report claims the midfielder might not remain a key member of the Gunners squad if Arthur joins and that could open the door for the Italians to get their man.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Xhaka has been a loyal servant to us for a long time now, but the Swiss star is prone to error.

He already has two red cards this season, and he is constantly looking like he would cost the team by either conceding a needless penalty or getting sent off.

At 29, this is probably the only time we can make money from his sale and it might be a smart decision to offload him now.

  1. No loan deal. Straight up £20 million cash deal so we can use the funds elsewhere. If i was Arsenal i would try a cheeky loan bid for van de beek though, the worse they will do is say “NO.”

  2. So let me get this straight….Roma only offered 12-15 mil last time with Xhaka’s contract starting to run down and it was rejected. So we gave him a new contract naturally increasing his “value” and/or price.

    So are we now expecting a 30mil bid or are we willing to accept the bid we should’ve originally?

    Not sure what Roma will offer considering he is now older, slower and has proven that his discipline won’t be improving.

  3. for the love of God Roma stop flirting and just consummate your marriage made in hell already

  4. Thanks to the incompetent Edu, Arsenal has become the foot-ball on the the transfer market field. With no vision or realistic planning, Arsenal has been kicked to all parts of the business arena by the giants and even the minnows too. After two weeks of a wild goose chase for striker Vlahovic, l thought Arsenal would have moved on. Instead, Edu subjected Arsenal to an embarrassing level of disregard and disrespect from Vlahovic and his agent to no avail. Secondly, Edu’s failure to move on all the fringe players after five transfer windows has demonstrated his incompetence ,as there was no cash return (except for Iwobi and Willock) for those who left. It’s time for Arsenal to be ruthless, competent and expedient in dealing with transfers by planning properly. If proper scouting and research on players interests ,availability and costs was done, Arsenal would have seriously considered strikers like Arthur Cabral, Darwin Nunez, Karim Adeyemi and Patrik Schick from day one of the transfer window. And,later in the summer transfer window, Arsenal can look at strikers like Irling Haaland, Alexander Isak or Jonathan David. To not strengthen the team with a striker and defensive midfielder now is risking the chances of qualifying for a top four finish. Failure to do so, should see Edu moved on. Stop wasting time on Arthur Melo. There are too many other available options at a right price. GET an upgrade on Xhaha and Partey now please.

    1. Vlahovic has red all the Arsenal posts and decided not to join to be drawn through the dirt year in and out – and he likes nice warm weather, slow Soccer and the Italian cuisine better.
      Partey was just the best thing that ever could happen to Arsenal and Lokonga, and now you are already dissing him? Who is an upgrade – when you have mediocrity up front?? Laca is still the best Striker there is? and Auba only in for the Money? Give us names not Vinegar

  5. God riddance for losing out for sure on 4th place – Partey is a nobody as well as Lokonga w/o Xhaka – and as you all said a guy from the slow Italian League now to the rescue – pathetic
