Arsenal chief reporter revealed £18m-rated midfielder will definitely work with Mikel Arteta next season

According to journalist Charles Watts, Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka could now stay at the club next season amid rumours of a transfer to Roma, with the Italian club thought to be looking at other options.

The north Londoners are looking to continue their rebuild under Mikel Arteta which saw them battle for a Champions League spot last season, ultimately finishing fifth and securing Europa League football for next season.

They have been linked with numerous targets like Gabriel Jesus, Ruben Neves and Richarlison while shifting some unwanted faces including Matteo Guendouzi and Alexandre Lacazette.

However, it now appears that Xhaka, who had been linked with a move away this summer, could now stay in N5 as linked club Roma are now targeting Nemanja Matic from Manchester United instead of the Swiss international.

Watts revealed this in his latest video on YouTube, stating: “Xhaka obviously is still at the club. I did think that there was quite a decent chance that Xhaka could end up leaving this summer and end up heading back to Rome, but it looks like maybe that’s not going to happen given they’re signing Nemanja Matic now.

“You kind of look at that and think, is there room for Xhaka? Perhaps not, so we’ll wait and see what happens with Granit.”
