Arsenal reject second bid from Roma for Xhaka

Arsenal have reportedly rejected another bid from Roma for midfielder Granit Xhaka.

Xhaka has been tipped to leave the Gunners, and he has already agreed personal terms over a five-year contract with Roma.

Roma recently failed with an opening £13m bid for his services, but it was reported that a second offer of £17m would be accepted.

However, according to Roma Press, that has not been the case. The Gunners are reluctant to lose Xhaka for less than £20m.

The negotiations are expected to continue between the clubs, and Xhaka is still being fancied to move to the Italian capital.

Jose Mourinho recently took charge of Roma, and he has identified the Switzerland international as his top midfield target.

Xhaka is excited by the prospect of working under the Portuguese. It could be a matter of time before he leaves the Gunners.

Xhaka is currently leading his nation at the European Championships. The Swiss drew 1-1 against Wales in their opening game.
