Granit Xhaka is Mourinho’s main objective for the midfield. The Special One has long identified the characteristics he wants in a midfielder in Arsenal’s Swiss international. Although the parties are near, with Roma pushing to finalize the move and Arsenal nearing the acceptance of the deal, earlier today Xhaka decided to put pressure on The Gunners.
When asked about his potential move to Roma, the Swiss midfielder answered: “Arsenal know what I want to do. It is very beautiful here [in Rome].”
It remains to be seen what the final figures of the deal will be, but all signs point to Xhaka wearing a Roma shirt in the upcoming season.
