Granit Xhaka has revealed he is aware of reported transfer interest from Jose Mourinho at Roma, as his future at Arsenal comes into question.
The midfielder looked set to leave the Emirates last year but was persuaded to stay in north London by Mikel Arteta.
With Arsenal set for a huge summer overhaul, rumours surrounding Xhaka’s future have begun to circulate with Roma reportedly interested in the 28-year-old.
“Of course I read the rumours too,“ he told Swiss daily Blick, via the Mirror.
“But now I’m one hundred per cent focused on the national team. That’s more important than Arsenal or rumours right now.
“I have another two years on my contract in London and at Arsenal, they know what they have in me.
“When the time comes and we can, may or must talk about a transfer, I’ll be here.“
“Honestly, I didn’t hear what Mourinho said, but that makes you proud,” Xhaka added.
“Everyone knows Mourinho and what he has achieved. Mourinho knows how to win trophies.”
