According to Sky Italy, Roma have opened talks with Arsenal for the signing of Granit Xhaka for a summer transfer.
Despite some ups and downs at Arsenal, Granit Xhaka has established himself as a crucial player under Arteta, both on the pitch and off it in the changing rooms.
But among the fans, he has always divided opinion. That, coupled with his age, could compel Arsenal to part ways with the former captain.
The asking price for Xhaka is €25 million according to Sky Italy, and Roma are very serious about signing him after Jose Mourinho identified him as a priority target this summer.
The question is, would you take this for Xhaka? €25 million is good money in my opinion, however, we will need to replace him. We have been linked with Bissouma, but if we sell Xhaka we will need to sign another defensive midfielder as well, or force Guendouzi to stay at the club.
Thinking ahead to Janaury 2022, with Bissouma, Elneny and Partey all potentially at the African Cup of Nations, we could be left with little to no central midfielders at a crucial point in the season.
