According to a report from Tuttomercatoweb, AS Roma has joined the race to recruit star Jakub Kiwior. Besides Roma, another Italian team interested in Kiwior is AC Milan. The Polish defender is no stranger to the pasta football environment as he once played for the Spezia club.
In January 2023, Kiwior landed at Arsenal. The 23-year-old star cannot occupy a regular starting position as he faces fierce competition for positions. Kiwior mainly plays a reserve role when coach Mikel Arteta prioritizes using the duo William Saliba – Gabriel Magalhaes as a central defender.
Kiwior had only 8 appearances in the second phase of last season. In the 2023/2024 season, the Polish star has 2 starts in the Premier League after 12 rounds.
According to comments from Tuttomercatoweb, coach Jose Mourinho wants to sign a contract with Kiwior on loan. The Portuguese strategist highly appreciates Kiwior’s abilities. With Chris Smalling out due to injury, Roma sees Kiwior as an option to add strength to the defense.
AS Roma will face a serious competitor named AC Milan. On the other hand, the scenario of Arsenal saying goodbye to Kiwior is quite low when Jurrien Timber is injured and Takehiro Tomiyasu returns to the Japanese team to attend the Asian Cup in January.
