Granit Xhaka takes a dig at his Arsenal teammates ahead of Roma transfer.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has taken a sharp ridicule at his teammates as the Switzerland international closes in on a move to Roma.

The 28-year-old is a target for Jose Mourinho, who retreated to Italy after being fired by Spurs in April.

Arsenal are open to allowing Xhaka to depart the club after five years at the Emirates, with rumors circulating in the last 24 hours that a fee of around £16m has been agreed between the two clubs.

Despite Arsenal’s miserable campaign, Xhaka enjoyed one of his better seasons in a red shirt as he made 45 appearances in all competitions.


But, in a cryptic taunt at his teammates, Xhaka says “you’re only as good as your team’” as he admitted that he feels ‘very bitter’ about how the season panned out.

“Football is a team sport & you’re only as good as your team,” said Xhaka.

“Of course, it was a good year for me personally. I’ve always played & performed.

“But the place at the end of the season is, of course, really bitter & disappointing for us.”

Arsenal aspires to use the cash from Xhaka’s departure to sign Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves.

The Midlands club price the Portugal ace at around £35m and Mikel Arteta knows he must sell first before landing the former Porto captain.

Arsenal are open to presentations for Hector Bellerin, Matteo Guendouzi, Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
