Xhaka appears to be aware of Mourinho’s desire to sign him, and the Roma are also expected to build confidence in the deal’s conclusion.
Arsenal are also more open to letting the 28-year-old leave Emirates Stadium as they have new signing Albert Sambi Lokonga in midfield.
The Belgian youngster’s signing was officially announced yesterday and seems like good business to bolster Mikel Arteta’s problematic position after the inconsistent form of Xhaka and others.
