Xhaka seems to remember of Mourinho’s desire to sign him, and Roma also are said to be growing in confidence about getting the deal done.
Arsenal also are more hospitable letting the 28-year-old leave the Emirates Stadium now that they need new signing Albert Sambi Lokonga in midfield.
The signing of the Belgian youngster was officially announced yesterday and appears sort of a fine piece of business to strengthen what had been a drag position for Mikel Arteta after the inconsistent sort of Xhaka et al. .Back to top button
