Odegaard ‘No 1 transfer’ target, Xhaka to Roma, Buendia competition, Sterling linked with Arsenal


Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has admitted he is flattered by interest from Jose Mourinho over a potential move.

Mourinho is the new Roma boss and is reportedly interested in bringing Xhaka to Italy.

Xhaka told Blick: “Of course I read [about the interest]. But now I’m 100 per cent focused on the national team here.

“That’s more important than Arsenal or rumours right now. I have another two years on my contract in London and Arsenal they know what they have in me. When the time comes to talk about a transfer, I’ll be here.”

The Switzerland midfielder added: “To be honest, I didn’t hear what Mourinho has said about me. But that makes you proud.

“Everyone knows Mourinho, knows what he has achieved. Mourinho knows how to win titles.

“You can now see what work I have done over the past few years.”

Meanwhile, left-back Ryan Bertrand is now a free agent after his contract at Southampton expired.

Arsenal have shown interest in signing Bertrand in the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to Football London, however, Leicester are leading the race as they held talks with the talented full-back.

Gunners manager Mikel Arteta is looking to significantly strengthen his squad after a poor season that saw the team miss out on European qualification for the first time in 25 years.

And finally, Willian is likely to leave the club in the summer.

The attacking midfielder failed to deliver at the Emirates since his move from Chelsea last year.

According to Sky Sports, the Brazil international is keen on a return to the Blues or a move to the MLS.

That could lead to a £15million profit for the Gunners, who are looking to raise funds ahead of the transfer window.
