Mkhitaryan negotiations continue

Negotiations are continuing between Arsenal and Roma about making the move of Henrikh Mkhitaryan into a permanent deal.

The Armenian international joined the Serie A side on loan for the season in August, after enduring a difficult time in England, first at Manchester United, and then at the Gunners, who he joined as part of the deal that saw Alexis Sanchez head in the other direction.

In part, injuries have hindered his progress and they have been an issue in Italy as well limiting him to just 16 appearances for the club so far. However, he has scored 7 goals for them, and they have seen enough to want to make the transfer permanent.

There are several conditions though. One is how much Arsenal want for Mkhitaryan, and the other is the length of contract he is likely to demand.  They are only prepared to offer him two years and, if he holds out for more, they will walk away from any deal.
