Reports at the time suggested that the Serie A giants had agreed personal terms with the player but were unable to strike a deal before the club’s bigwigs at Emirates.

But outlets in Italy now think Mourinho is back with the 29-year-old and hope to bring him back before the transfer window closes next week.

Any deal for the midfielder won’t necessarily go smoothly, though.

Both Corriere dello Sport and La Gazzetta dello Sport Mou will have to get rid of a player before he can bring his own in.

A likely candidate is Amadou Diawara, but the Guinea international has refused to move to Valencia.

The 24-year-old is said to earn around £1.8m a year and finding a buyer to match his salary is proving difficult.

Arsenal are believed to have made a bid of £16.6m for Xhaka, with Roma prepared to pay multiple times to match that.

Xhaka has had a forgettable season so far in North London.

The Swiss star has been sent off twice and out for three months because of a knee ligament injury.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is currently keeping an eye on Wolves’ Ruben Neves, with his arrival likely to pave the way for Xhaka’s exit.
