Arsenal open to selling Granit Xhaka?

Granit Xhaka news

Xhaka to leave Arsenal after five years?

Arsenal are open to parting ways with midfielder Granit Xhaka during the upcoming transfer window, claims.

The Swiss has been with the Gunners for the past five years, and he is reportedly open to a new challenge.

Roma, who are managed by Jose Mourinho, have made an approach with the Portuguese being a huge admirer.

However, their offer of £15m has been rejected by the Gunners, who are looking for at least £20m to do business.

Xhaka has been a crucial player under Mikel Arteta, and has been an ever-present in the starting line-up when fit.

He came close to joining Hertha Berlin in January last year, but was convinced to stay after talks with Arteta.

The Gunners are planning a major squad rebuild this summer. They are looking to sign more than one midfielder.

It is likely that Xhaka would lose his starting spot, and he appears prepared to head through the exit door in the coming weeks.
