The Swiss star was expected to hook up with Jose Mourinho in Italy – but that is no longer happening

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Granit Xhaka’s proposed move to Roma is off – and that he expects the midfielder to be a “key member” of the team this year.

Earlier in the summer, the defensive midfielder seemed destined to link up with Jose Mourinho at the Serie A club, though last week reports started to circulate that Xhaka would remain with the Gunners.

Xhaka recently returned to training before scoring in Arsenal’s 2-1 friendly defeat to Chelsea on Sunday, with Arteta’s comments coming after the match.
