Roma want to keep Mkhitaryan

Roma want to keep Henrikh Mkhitaryan beyond the end of this season.

The Armenian international joined the Serie A side on a season long loan from Arsenal last August, and, despite suffering from several injuries, had forced his way into the starting line-up and was beginning to impress when the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in the suspension of the season.

Despite the subsequent hiatus, Roma’s manager Paolo Fonseca’s stance on the player has not changed, and he aims to try and convince the club’s board to sign the 31 year old on a permanent basis saying “I want him to stay, and he wants to stay.”

Roma reportedly offered Arsenal £10 million to sign him in January, a bid which the Gunners turned down. However, the financial picture has changed considerably since then for both clubs, and Arsenal are now open to selling him, in order to raise extra funds to boost what is likely to be a slim transfer kitty at the Emirates.
