'Get Renato or Bissouma now': Arsenal fans react as Roma lodge £18m Granit Xhaka bid

Arsenal fans have been having their say on reports yesterday that suggested Granit Xhaka could bet set to sign for Roma for around £18m.

Calciomercato has suggested that Roma have now upped their bid to around the £18m mark, with £15m coming straight up and the rest in add-ons. It’s claimed that the bid, finally, could be enough to tempt Arsenal into selling Xhaka.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are in the midst of a bit of a summer rebuild. Mikel Arteta and Edu are wheeling and dealing their way through a difficult market.

So far, Nuno Tavares has signed. Albert Lokonga is expected to follow, while a goalkeeper remains a priority as well.

And with £18m potentially coming through for Xhaka from Roma, Arsenal fans have been suggesting the club take the money and re-invest before it’s too late.
