Italian media reports Granit Xhaka’s Roma move expected to be announced soon

Xhaka ordeal over?

According to local Italian outlet ForzaRomaGranit Xhaka’s transfer saga could soon be over.

The Swiss international has made clear his intentions to leave north London this summer, having previously spoken about learning Italian and the excitement of potentially working under Jose Mourinho. And his wish looks set to be fulfilled imminently.

As per the report, Arsenal and Roma have come to an agreement on the fee, thought to have been the previous sticking point. While the Gunners wanted 20 million, a compromise of 15 million pounds, with a further 2.5 million in “easy add ons”, has been agreed.

Xhaka is currently on holiday after his exploits at Euro 2020 with Switzerland, whom he helped to reach the quarter-final stages before they were knocked out on penalties by Spain. However, ForzaRoma suggest that the Arsenal man could cut short his time away in order to complete the move.

Meanwhile, personal terms have been agreed for a month now. Xhaka is reportedly set to put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal worth 2.5 million euros a year, working out at around 50,000 euros per week.

Arsenal’s fans have endured a love-hate relationship with Xhaka, who signed for the club for 35 million pounds in 2016. He has gone on to represent the club on 220 occasions, scoring 13 goals in the process. The Swiss formed a strong partnership with new arrival Thomas Partey last season, something that Arsenal will need to dip into the transfer market to replace.
