Jose Mourinho not giving up on signing Arsenal star

Jose Mourinho could return for Granit Xhaka, according to a report in Italy.

AS Roma targeted the Swiss midfielder in the last transfer window, but Arsenal tied him down to a new contract instead.

He remains one of Mikel Arteta’s most trusted men, but the Gunners might be forced to reject another approach from Roma soon.

Corriere Dello Sport, as reported by The Sun, claims there is a good possibility that Mourinho would return to sign him again.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Xhaka has been nursing an injury for over a month now. 

In his absence, Arsenal has been in fine form with the likes of Albert Sambi Lokonga and Ainsley Maitland Niles deputising very well.

He is likely to reclaim his starting place in the team when he returns to full fitness.

If that happens, Arteta would confirm once again that the former Borussia Monchengladbach man is in his plans.

Xhaka has always divided opinions among Arsenal’s fans, but Arteta is very sure of the values he brings to the team.

Fans would hope he can combine well with Thomas Partey to form a successful long-term midfield partnership that would help the club win several trophies.

  1. Whilst Xhaka has his attributes I thinkSambi has more than adequately replaced him and it will be interesting to see how Sambi performs over the coming weeks and if Arteta is brought straight back into the team when recovered from injury. No one knows really until we get to that point in the season.

  2. Xhaka can come back slowly into the team from a big injury as Lokonga & Niles are holding the fort very well, plus Partey has played well when hes played! We still need another body in there come January.

    Strong Midfield, Laca for the hold up and Nuno to keep up with Salah. My preferred Line Up Away to Anfield.

  3. if the title of this article is to be believed, I pray Jose succeeds in his quest for mediocrity

  4. Xhaka just signed an extension does that not mean anything in football? He is one of us and he will come back straight into that midfield I have no doubt in my mind!!!
