Journalist confirms that Roma is interested in Arsenal man

Jakub Kiwior is a serious target for AS Roma as he struggles for game time at Arsenal.

He joined the Gunners in January after a fine World Cup with Poland and had hoped he could break into their team.

Despite acquiring the former Spezia man, Arsenal splashed the cash on Jurrien Timber in the last transfer window.

The Dutchman’s arrival, coupled with Rob Holding’s departure, pushed Kiwior down the center-back pecking order at the Emirates.

Nevertheless, the Gunners still want to keep him for squad depth and decided not to sell him in the summer despite interest from several sides.

Kiwior is now firmly on the radar of Jose Mourinho at AS Roma, and a journalist has confirmed that the Serie A side is considering making a move.

Niccolo Ceccarini said, as quoted by Area Napoli:

“Among the players liked there is certainly Kiwior. The Pole, who moved to Arsenal a year ago for more than €25m, is not finding much space and therefore it could become an interesting market opportunity.

“Roma is evaluating whether to make an attempt, perhaps with the formula of a loan until June. Another idea leads to Dier, a player who Mourinho has already coached at Tottenham. He is out of contract of contract and this could facilitate any negotiation.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Kiwior is not among the top four best centre-backs in the Emirates and has to wait for his time.

The Pole also does not seem built for the Premier League and probably needs to spend more time developing himself.

  1. Kwior is a very promising young centre back and we should resist any approach from Roma, or any other Club, to take him on loan.He is a capable deputy for Gabriel and is,in my opinion, superior to the Brazilian in a number of areas.The departure of Holding has nothing whatsoever to do with your assertion of where he is in the pecking order as Tomi and the young Pole provide quality back up for Saliba and Gabriel.In addition they are both adaptable and can play in the full back roles and Kwior has been used as a DM when he played in Italy.

  2. Arsenal wouldn’t be selling Kiwior infact arsenal are looking at bringing Radu Dragusin as William Salina’s cover so as Gabriel and Kiwior to be the left sided center backs

  3. Arsenal should not allow Kiorw to leave. He’s a skilled, young, versatile player whose full value at the emirates is yet to be realised. No way Arsenal can let him go to Roma, and then start all over again to built up the defence.
    With a good Center Forward,(not Havertz) we are popping City to the title this season.
