Serie A side looking to splash summer budget on Arsenal midfielder

Roma are claimed to be keen on splashing out on midfielder Granit Xhaka’s signing from Arsenal this summer after news of their transfer budget.

The Giallorossi were believed to be keen on his signature last summer, but despite the saga running on for some time, no deal was come found.

The Swiss midfielder ended up signing a new contract with the north London club, and has played a key role in the first-team throughout the new season, but now appears to be set for another summer of transfer rumours with Jose Mourinho once again claimed to be hoping that his side will strike a deal, as reported by La Gazzetta.

I struggle to believe that many Arsenal fans would be unhappy with his exit, whilst he can be a big player for us, he can also be a huge hinderance on our side, especially when he is receiving so many red cards.

We will be expected to bring in a top midfielder in the summer regardless of what happens with Xhaka, with Sambi Lokonga yet to stake a claim for a regular starting role, while the Partey-Xhaka partnership isn’t proving to be as instrumental as we would have hoped.

Would you be unhappy to see Granit go? Who would be his ideal replacement?

  1. “Would I be unhappy to see Granit go! What a marvellous feed line for a huge number of comedy put downs! I AM SORELY TEMPTED TO USE SOME but will refrain, as all regulars know MY answer to that needless question.

    As for an ideal replacement, to answer PATRICKS MORE SENSIBLE QUESTION, much will depend on who is available within our budget, but I would suggest that almost any player on EARTH would be a better replacement than keeping this crazed, statuesque tortoise in the team and in the club.

    In my view, his inclusion by our last three managers to date is the most UNFATHOMABLE MYSTERY I have seen at our beloved club in my long football watching lifetime.


  2. stop getting me so riled up and just show some intent already…this constant teasing has me feeling rather blue…keep it up and I’ll need to invest in some saltpeter

  3. Time Xhaka moved on, although wouldn’t be surprised if they extended his contract by another year and raised his wages again.

    He’s just not suited for the PL; can’t tackle, slow in thought and action, 5 years and 3 managers have shown that much.
