AMAZING, GREAT DEAL’: SOME ARSENAL FANS REACT TO HEARING ABOUT POTENTIAL SWAP DEAL

Arsenal fans are reacting on Twitter to a rumour coming out of Italy regarding Granit Xhaka.

The Swiss midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Roma in recent weeks.

Xhaka, a £35 million signing by Arsenal in 2016, did little to discourage the Italian club from making a move after sharing his admiration for their new coach Jose Mourinho.

According to Corriere Dello Sport, Mourinho could offer £12.8 million but also send Cengiz Under as part of the deal.

Arsenal reportedly wanted the Turkey international before he joined Roma.Here’s how some fans of the North London club reacted to this speculation on Twitter:

IS IT A GOOD DEAL?

Not really, no. It’s a much better one for Roma.

Getting almost £13 million and Under would’ve been great business a few years ago.

But since then, Under, who started just the one Premier League game during a dismal loan at Leicester City last season, has gone backwards in a big way.

If he can’t get in the Foxes’ best XI then quite frankly Arsenal shouldn’t go anywhere near him.

Selling Xhaka to Roma is a genuine possibility but Edu and Mikel Arteta would be mad to accept what Corriere are reporting.
