Roma make desperate plea as Arsenal talks lead winger to exit door

    Date published: Tuesday 30th June 2020 4:02

    Roma have urged Arsenal target Justin Kluivert to commit to what remains of his side’s push for European football next season, according to reports.

    Speculation over several months has linked Netherlands international Kluivert with a move to the Gunners.

    Reports have claimed Arsenal are in talks with the 22-year-old and that super-agent Mino Raiola is in attendance.

    The latest claim from Gazzetta dello Sport says Roma, who need to raise funds, are resigned to losing Kluivert and Cengiz Under for a total  of €65million (£59million).

    However, the Italians do not want the pair to give up on the club’s push for European football next season.

    Roma are struggling to get that message across, though, and the side’s CEO, Guido Fienga, has now stepped in.

    The source claims he has asked head coach Paulo Fonseca to motivate his players for the challenges ahead.

    Fienga and his fellow officials feel there is a lack of desire among many to finish the season on a high. Several players – including Kluivert and Under – reportedly need convincing before it is “too late”.

    Indeed, Kluivert did not feature in Roma’s first game back last weekend, a 2-1 win over Sampdoria, before lasting 58 minutes against AC Milan last time out.

    Under, meanwhile, played 18 minutes against Sampdoria and was an unused substitute versus Milan.

    Roma sit in fifth place in Serie A, nine points off fourth-placed Atalanta.

    However, they are yet to play sixth-placed Napoli – who sit three points behind – and also face Juventus and Inter before the campaign finishes.

    Reports claim Under is a target for Everton and West Ham, with Napoli also keen.



    In other news, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants William Saliba to play the Coupe de France final.

    Arsenal signed the defender last summer and loaned him back to Saint-Etienne for the current campaign.

    A foot injury has halted his progress, ruling him out for three months.

    However, Saint-Etienne will face Paris Saint-Germain in the showpiece final on July 24.
