‘Barring any surprises’ Arsenal will sell ‘ideal reinforcement’

Arsenal will sell Granit Xhaka to Roma this summer for €20m unless something surprising happens, according to reports in Italy.

and joining former Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho at the Serie A club.

The 28-year-old midfielder has made 220 appearances for Arsenal since signing from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2016.



He played a starring role for Switzerland as they reached the quarter-finals of Euro 2020, knocking out France in the process – but Arsenal are still looking to sell Xhaka this summer.

The Swiss midfielder is pushing for a move to Roma, and reports this month have suggested talks between the two clubs are progressing, despite the Italian side’s rejected €15m bid.

A recent report claimed the deal is not as close as had initially been claimed, .

However, reckon it is ‘a marriage that is about to come true’ with Mourinho having ‘identified him as an ideal reinforcement’ as he looks to revamp Roma.

The report insists that ‘all is done and the signing, barring sensational surprises, will arrive shortly’ with Xhaka about to sign for €20m.

Roma start their pre-season trip to Portugal in three days time and the club expect Xhaka to join before it ends on August 6.

Speaking about speculation ahead of Euro 2020, Xhaka said: “There are always rumours as soon as the transfer market opens but I don’t want to talk about my future.

“I am 100 per cent focused here with the national team and I want to keep that until the end of the tournament.

“What happens afterwards, you will then get to know about it. Everything else doesn’t distract me.

“I am fit and motivated and looking forward to doing a lot of things in this tournament for the team.”

Meanwhile, former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour reckons the tempo of Italian football will suit Xhaka down to the ground.

“He’s had good games like [against France] at Arsenal, but I just think mobility is key in the Premier League and he lacks that,” Parlour said.

“International football can be a bit slower sometimes, the build-up play isn’t as fast which doesn’t suit his game.

“If he goes to Roma, I think Italy is perfect for him. It’s a slower game over there and you know Xhaka has got the passing ability to excel there.”

Bayern left-back Davies admits Man Utd star is ‘better’ than him

Bayern Munich full-back Alphonso Davies has admitted that Man Utd defender Luke Shaw is ‘clear’ of himself, meaning that he thinks he is clearly better than him.

Shaw enjoyed a splendid 12 months, by far the best of his career. He was a standout for Man Utd as they finished runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League, runners-up to Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League, and runner-up at UEFA EURO 2020 with England.

Davies on the other hand endured a slightly less colourful season as he struggled for a first-team place ahead of Lucas Hernandez. In the year prior, Davies enjoyed a mainstay role in the Bayern Munich treble-winning side as well as a spot in the UEFA Team Of The Year squad. 



Davies was full of praise for the Man Utd and England man. Davies said on his official TikTok account:

“I just saw one that was like ‘Luke Shaw is clear’. What does that mean? Someone explain to me. I never really understood that – clear of what?”

He then read out a reply in the chat: “That means he’s better.

“Ohhh! Ohh, OK, I get it now, it means he’s better. Yeah, I mean, he is, he’s a really good player!

“Alright, so every time you say like ‘Luke Shaw is clear, Robbo [Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson] is clear, that means he’s better’. OK, makes sense, makes sense.”

Shaw is finally living up to the £30m price tag the Red Devils paid for the 26-year-old back in 2014. He saw a relatively established name around Europe in Alex Telles come in to which he took this as a challenge and beat it in convincing style.

Telles seems to be already ready to move on from Old Trafford just one year after he joined and that’s very much down to the form and exemplary fitness of Shaw.

Man Utd are active in the transfer market with incoming and outgoings, the big news right now is Jadon Sancho and Real Madrid defender Raphaël Varane who are the marquee targets for the club this summer.
