Roma ‘feeling confident’ as they prepare new Granit Xhaka offer with agreement made

The drawn out transfer of Granit Xhaka could finally be moving along after the signing of Albert Sambi Lokonga, with Roma claimed to be confident in getting their man from Arsenal.

The Gunners confirmed the arrival of the Belgian midfielder yesterday, have initially opened talks with Anderlecht just before Euro 2020, and his presence in North London could well aid Arsenal’s decision to allow Xhaka to depart.

Jose Mourinho is claimed to be a keen admirer of the Swiss international, and his club appear to be closing in on his signature, with Fabrizio Romano insisting that terms have already been agreed between the player and Roma.

The Giallorossi still need to agree the makeup of the transfer with the North London club however, but Romano insists that the Serie A side are now confident that they will be able to complete the deal, with Xhaka making it his priority to make the move to the Stadio Olimpico.

Is Lokonga’s arrival enough to cover the departure of Xhaka?

  2. Wenger, Emery, Arteta… they all played and praised Xhaka.
    Xhaka does put in a shift, he can spot a pass and red-mists aside seems to selflessly try and execute team game plans. But as a spectator to me other midfielders often look sharper and those thunderbolt shots when he joined are now a distant memory.
    With Jose is now wanting him it must be me who needs to re-examine my judgement. However if we can sell him for lots of money and get in an amazing CM replacement… Good luck to him!

  3. ATID, would you really have an olympic grade diver in our team ?. sterling is , and, i include,harry kane in this, the very worst diver ever. how he cons referees is beyond me.

  4. Lokonga is not enough to replace Xhaka. He is one to develop, Arsenal needs an experienced midfielder better than both to partner Partey now.
