Los Rojiblancos in the hunt for Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka and set to battle with Inter Milan and Roma for the player. The Spanish club have problems in the squad as Rodrigo Hernandez and Thomas Partey linked with several clubs, and they need replacement.
Switzerland international is the best choice in this situation as he had an excellent campaign and proved his greatness one more time. Diego Simeone will do everything to sign him this summer, but it won’t be easy as Nerazzurri and Giallorossi also planning to make a bid during the transfer window.
There will be a contest for the footballer, and his price could become much more. Granit joined the Gunners from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2016 with a €45m deal. He is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and unchanged figure for the club.
In this season, Xhaka played 40 matches, scored four goals and made five assists in all competition. It is an impressive result, and he can improve his consequences during the next campaign. The Swiss superstar has contracted with the London club until 2023, and his release clause is nearly €50m.
He regularly plays in the national team line-up and also helped them to reach the playoff in 2018 World Cup, but after losing 1-0 with Sweden, they kicked out from the tournament. Probably the 26-year-old midfielder will accept the correct offer from the Argentine manager.
Atletico Madrid had terrible results in this season as they kicked out from the Champions League and Copa del Rey. Los Rojiblancos already added Porto centre-back, Felipe, this summer.
