Roma are in talks to sign Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, according to Sky in Italy.
The Gunners want a fee in the region of £21.5m (€25m), however Roma want to pay something closer to £10m plus bonuses.
Xhaka was requested by new Roma boss Jose Mourinho, who was named as Paulo Fonseca’s replacement in May.
The ex-Tottenham boss is understood to be an admirer of the Switzerland international and said of Xhaka two years ago: “He is the most important man in the entire Arsenal midfield. He’s a true leader.”
