Granit Xhaka makes a decision on Arsenal's future with Jose Mourinho comes knocking.

Granit Xhaka has decided on his Arsenal future having been made a preclude transfer option by new Roma manager Jose Mourinho.

The Switzerland international came close to exiting Arsenal 18 months ago after he lost the captaincy after a dramatic bust-up with his supporters during a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

Xhaka was convinced to remain by Unai Emery’s successor, Mikel Arteta, and played a crucial role in last year’s FA Cup success and was arguably one of Arsenal’s most regular performers during the season just gone.

Mourinho, meanwhile, has been a long-term admirer of the Swiss and has singled out the 28-year-old for praise in the past.

“Xhaka is the main man in the entire Arsenal midfield, you can’t see it unless I lend you one of my eyes,” Mourinho said back in 2019. “Without him, Arsenal is lost. He is a leader. Remember, mistakes are made by humans.”

According to football.london, Xhaka is known to be intent on the idea of seeking a fresh test and working with Mourinho, a manager he is said to have huge admiration for, while he is confident of having his future sorted before the start of Euro 2020.

Although Arteta still holds Xhaka in high esteem, Arsenal wants to raise around £60million through player sales this season to help fund a squad overhaul of their own and hopes to recover around a third of that sum by selling the former Borussia Monchengladbach captain.

The Gunners are also contemplating offloading fragments of the Emery era, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi, both of whom spent last summer out on loan at Atletico Madrid and Hertha Berlin, respectively.

Arsenal are keeping checks on Norwich playmaker Emi Buendia and could influence the newly promoted Canaries with a player plus cash offer for their prized asset, while they also hold a long-standing interest in Brighton’s Yves Bissouma
