Granit Xhaka news

Xhaka set for Roma switch

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka could reportedly made the move to Roma by next week, Sky Sport Italy claims.



The Swiss has been fancied to join the Giallorossi, but the Serie A club have yet to meet the Gunners' price tag.

They have made an opening offer of €15m that remains below the reported asking price of around €20m.

According to Sky Sport Italy, the Giallorossi are in advanced talks with the Gunners, and a deal is almost finalised.

Xhaka is expected to return from holiday next week, and it is claimed that he will join Roma's pre-season camp in Portugal.

The Gunners have already landed a new midfielder in Albert Sambi Lokonga, but they are eyeing another signing.

Manuel Locatelli has emerged as a top target for the club, but he continues to favour a move to Juventus this summer.

They have already made an opening bid for the Italian, and remain hopeful of luring him in the coming weeks.
