    Roma boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly set his sights on Borussia Dortmund ace Thomas Delaney after missing out on Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, writes JUSTIN LAWRENCE.

    Dortmund are willing to cash in on Delaney and have slapped a £9million price tag on the Danish ace, according to German news outlet Bild.

    This has alerted Mourinho who's ready to snap up the 29-year-old in a bid to bolster his Roma squad ahead of the upcoming Serie A season, Bild claim.

    But the ex-Manchester United boss will have to wait and see if Delaney signs a new deal with Dortmund.

    Xhaka had been Mourinho's first choice but his hopes of signing the Swiss star were dashed when the Gunners revealed he's staying put.

    That is according to SportMediaset, who claim the Gunners have opened talks for top target Lautaro but both Inter and the player are yet to be swayed.

    But first they will have to raise some funds after missing out on European qualification

    The Norway international spent the second half of last season on loan at the Gunners, who wish to sign him on a permanent basis

    There's just eleven days to go now until the Gunners get their 2021/22 Premier League season underway at Premier League new-boys Brentford on August 13.

    Mikel Arteta will be desperate to improve on last season's dismal 8th place finish in the league that saw the Gunners miss out on European football for the first time in 25 years.

    Ben White's arrival should help to steady the ship, but will there be any more incomings at Arsenal before the season gets started?
