Xhaka rejects another club and waits for Roma

Granit Xhaka has rejected an approach to join another club as he looks to earn a move to AS Roma this summer.

The Swiss midfielder has become the subject of interest from Jose Mourinho’s new club and Arsenal will sell.

The Gunners have been negotiating with Roma to get him off their wage bill, but they are standing firm in their demand of 20m euros.

This fee is one that Roma seems to be struggling to pay, but Arsenal is insisting that they reach that figure if they want to land him.

As both clubs continue to struggle to reach an agreement, it seems one of his other suitors is keen to take advantage of the situation to sign him.

Calciomercato via Inside Futbol says the midfielder has had an approach from another Italian club, but he turned it down.

The club’s name was undisclosed, but this shows that the former Borussia Monchengladbach man might be interested in working with Jose Mourinho.

Arsenal will continue to insist that they meet their demands, but it remains unclear if he would force through a move to Italy.

Having reached the quarterfinals of Euro 2020 with Switzerland, Roma should consider that his value has increased.

    Joachim Low 🗣 “We’ve just been knocked out by England. It stinks…..almost as much as my fingers” 🤣🤣

      Haha Sue I just mentioned that 😂😂

      1. Sue says:

        I can’t believe it, Kev, no not about scratch ‘n stiff, us getting through!!! Could this be it???

        1. Kev82 says:

          Haha I think it was his last game too ? 😂 It could well be Sue but I’d still hold caution, I’ve seen this all before, everyone thought Croatia would be straightforward and look what happened 😳 I’m guessing Sweden next 😄

          1. Sue says:

            And Iceland 😉 It’s looking
            favourable though, Kev. Although I think I jinxed France by saying to you about Xhaka’s announcement 🤣 so I best keep schtum!!

          2. Kev82 says:

            Haha yes you did apparently Xhaka was signing his deal with Roma shortly after France eliminate Suisse 😉😂 oh god yeah the mighty Iceland 😑 it definitely is Sue I will expect at least the final 😄 Alex Scott in the studio tonight 🤩

          3. Sue says:

            Hahahaha!! They’re toying with us, making us wait longer until our arrivals/departures are announced!
            Stop drooling, Kev 😂

          4. Kev82 says:

            If Sweden go out tonight Isak to Arsenal should be announced immediately ? 😂. Thing is Sue I wouldn’t sell for what Roma is offering, I think he’s better than that 😳. Haha I’d of happily preferred studio coverage rather than this game 😂

  2. Kev82 says:

    Xhaka looks different in that photo 😝 we too often sell players for pittance 25 mil or no deal 🤫

  3. NY_Gunner says:

    We should be tryin to make a move for Kalvin Phillips….

    1. Sue says:

      👍👍 yes please!!!

      1. NY_Gunner says:

        Leeds might stamp a heavy price tag on him. But to me he looks the business. Take him over White any day. The kid is versatile and works his socks off…

        1. Sue says:

          They certainly will, NYG, he’s one of their best players. A lot of clubs will come calling… unfortunately I can’t see us being one of them. Shame, as he’s such a beast, the business indeed!

    Xhaka isn’t looking his age at all … very youthful

    1. Kev82 says:

      @SueP looks 19, 20 tops 😂😂

      1. SueP says:

        Just like me!😱

        1. Kev82 says:

          Haha considering we’re the most stressed out supporters in the country but I’m sure your still a youthful lady Sue 🤓

          1. SueP says:

            You need sunglasses 😊

  5. Mac says:

    Yer agree Phillips and White , would be good !

    Phillips , Partey , Smith Rowe

    Nice middle set !

  6. Mac says:

    What 28 !!!

    I’m pretty annoyed with Roma. Now the world has seen how good Xhaka can be but theyre still trying to get him for free, trying to make us the bad guys here. Like a small child – “please sir I want it but I have no money – please give it to me”. Maybe we should try that with Mbappe.
    Or maybe just keep Xhaka unless somebody pays a fair value. Hypnotise him to believe he’s playing for Switzerland every week. Buy him a local Trattoria, a Lambretta and a solarium. so he thinks he’s living in Rome. He’s more of a pro than Ozil, he’ll settle down again.

  8. Sunday Ibrahim says:

    I can’t wait to see him out of that club 😀😀😀😃

  9. Ozziegunner says:

    Granit Xhaka’s valuation has increased due to his international performances. He is contracted to Arsenal; therefore a buying club meets Arsenal’s valuation or loses the player. There will be other suitors.
    Why should Arsenal buy expensive and sell cheap? It’s about time Arsenal toughened up and negotiated hard, both in selling and buying in the current transfer market.

    If Xhaka does not go to Roma, MA and Edu might think of keeping him for another season, unless he desperately wants to move out.

  11. Declan says:

    Juve are now on for him too.
