Rumours in the summer said that Inter were preparing a 40m bid. If they get that sort of money for him then it would be a great deal for them...
That's mad from Inter if true. Like I've said before I struggle to understand what exactly it is that he's supposed to bring to a team. He's relatively hard-working I guess, but he's not particularly good on the ball, not particularly good at passing, not particularly good at shooting, and defensively he's just an absolute liability who can't tackle for shit. He's up there with Aurier for the "Walking Red Card of the Season" award for me. I know 40m isn't a huge amount in the ridiculous market today but there must be better options than Xhaka for a team like Inter surely?

I agree. He's really good at pinging long balls but that's about it. He's slow and reckless.

I think Inter were/are after buying established names to rebuild their team. Probably a way of trying to repair their reputation which has fallen in recent years.

If Arsenal get 40m to invest into a new CM (they did scout Guendozi) then that could make them more stable in midfield...

And even that he's not exactly Pirlo is he. His 1 thing he's supposed to be good at he's still not properly world class at, and if you're only going to be good at one thing then you need to be world class at it. He's just a very very mediocre player all round for me.

He's awful. In this league at least, would probably be great in Italy.

Jazz Hands appears to mean something totally different where I come from........unless these people are less sensitive to fapping type noises?

Jamie O'Hara on which manager Arsenal should recruit next:

"What about Eddie Howe?"

Brazil: "he hasn't really won anything"

O'Hara: "He's not going to win anything at Arsenal anyway."

Nice to have a bit of Arsenal trolling for a change.
And then the suggestion
of Big Sam...🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

Funny how the red half of North London are more in the mood of sacking Emery considering the position they are in. The game against Leicester seems to be such a crucial game for them now.

But whatever it is, really hope Mourinho doesn't go there. Will revitalise them so much.
