Xhaka on the verge of Arsenal exit

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is reportedly close to securing his move to the Serie A with Roma.



The Switzerland international has already agreed terms with Roma, but the club have yet to settle on the fee.

Roma have agreed to meet the Gunner's £17m price tag, but talks are still ongoing over performance-related bonuses.

The Gunners want another additional £2.57m in achievable add-ons, and the structure of the deal is being discussed.

Xhaka is currently with Switzerland at the European Championships. He will lead his team against France next week.

Aside from Xhaka, the Gunners are in the process of offloading Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi this summer.

Torreira is likely to join Lazio on loan with the option to buy for £12m. Guendouzi is expected to be sold permanently.

Guendouzi is reportedly on the radar of Marseille and Borussia Dortmund. The Gunners want around £10m for his sale.

The Gunners are currently in advanced negotiations with Anderlecht to sign Belgian midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga.
