Some Arsenal fans disgusted after report over Roma valuation of Xhaka
Some Arsenal fans were left disgusted after a report emerged over a proposed valuation from Roma for Granit Xhaka amid talks over a transfer.
According to Sky in Italy, the Serie A outfit are in talks to sign the midfielder with new boss Jose Mourinho keen on the Switzerland international.
However, the Giallirossi want to pay £10m plus bonuses for the ace, whereas Arsenal want £21.5m (€25m) to part with the player.
Xhaka has enjoyed one of the better seasons from Mikel Arteta’s squad of underperforming stars, earning a place in the CIES Premier League team of the season for 2020/2021.
He was lauded as Arsenal’s best midfielder by Mourinho over two years ago.
Too important: Xhaka proves invaluable asset amid Roma talks
Roma’s chase of Xhaka is worrying news for those associated with Arsenal, especially Mikel Arteta.
The Spaniard has entrusted the Swiss ace since he was appointed manager back in December. Xhaka has played in 45 games this season across all competitions, rarely missing a fixture this year.
His unbelievable fitness makes him a crucial player for the Gunners and thus an invaluable asset.
Here is how fans reacted to the report…
They’re having a laugh, at least 30— 𝕊𝕖𝕩𝕪𝕊𝕒𝕝𝕚𝕓𝕒 🐅 #DangoteIn (@AFCnolan) May 27, 2021
I like that. Absolutely ridiculous offer. Xhaka is the best midfielder we have. Don’t sell him— arsenalabsolutely @ENDSARSNOW# (@arsenalabsolut1) May 27, 2021
Tell them cheapskates we aren't interested. 30 million minimum— Giulia (@pray4greys) May 27, 2021
Italian clubs are not serious— Don Draper (@arsenalbarclays) May 27, 2021
1. You cannot replace Granit Xhaka’s importance to this squad with £21.5m.— Av (@aviv_lavi) May 27, 2021
2. If you only want to pay £10m for a midfielder, you can have Elneny.
10 million is robbery but we’ve never been great at getting value for our players— 🔴DM⚪️ (@daviem2013) May 27, 2021
That's a disgrace— SMG⁶'⁸ 🇷🇼🎗 (@GaluweroIII) May 27, 2021
