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.

  1. Granit? But that’s a picture of Gabi! πŸ˜„

    OT… We’re through!!! Woah!!
    Joachim Low πŸ—£ “We’ve just been knocked out by England. It stinks…..almost as much as my fingers” 🀣🀣

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

        1. Haha I think it was his last game too ? πŸ˜‚ 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 πŸ˜„

          1. And Iceland πŸ˜‰ 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. Haha yes you did apparently Xhaka was signing his deal with Roma shortly after France eliminate Suisse πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ oh god yeah the mighty Iceland πŸ˜‘ it definitely is Sue I will expect at least the final πŸ˜„ Alex Scott in the studio tonight 🀩

          3. Hahahaha!! They’re toying with us, making us wait longer until our arrivals/departures are announced!
            Stop drooling, Kev πŸ˜‚

          4. If Sweden go out tonight Isak to Arsenal should be announced immediately ? πŸ˜‚. 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 πŸ˜‚

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

      1. @Sue
        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. 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!

        1. Haha considering we’re the most stressed out supporters in the country but I’m sure your still a youthful lady Sue πŸ€“

  3. Yer agree Phillips and White , would be good !

    Phillips , Partey , Smith Rowe

    Nice middle set !

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
