The 14th of Jan is a day that will always be engraved in my heart… Three years ago, on this same day, I joined the Arsenal family… I call it family, because it is how it’s like to be here at Arsenal… I’m grateful for every single moment during those 3 years, the tough moments and the many happy ones.. I’m grateful for the one of a kind fans, for the coaches, for the colleagues who became real brothers, for everyone.. I’m grateful for the past and I’m very much looking forward to the future..♥️ @arsenal
However, the midfielder has been linked with a move away from the Gunners before the end of the month and according to Tuttomercatoweb, the Italian outfit AS Roma have made a move for the player.
Giallorossi are currently two points adrift of a top-four place in Serie A table, but manager Eusebio Di Francesco is keen to bolster his squad before the end of the month.
The report adds that Roma are considering a loan deal with an option to buy permanent during the summer, although the Gunners may demand a permanent transfer given their need to raise funds for new signings.
