Arsenal and Roma have been caught up in a transfer saga regarding the transfer of Granit Xhaka, who is thought to want a fresh challenge away from the Emirates, with Arsenall willing to sell.

It has now been reported by Chris Wheatley, that the Swiss international is very close to finally departing.

Wheatley has reported that personal terms have been agreed and Xhaka will sign a 5 year contract with the Serie A side. The fee is still yet to be agreed upon, but reports suggest the two clubs are getting closer in their valuation. At first, Arsenal were demanding €25 million and Roma only wanted to pay €12-15 million, but Wheatley has said that the fee now will be agreed in the region from €18 million to €20 million.

Arsenal have already lined up a potential replacement in Wolves star Ruben Neves, who could cost around £40 million.

What do you think about this deal Gooners? Is this good business?
