Mkhitaryan completes Roma loan switch

first_imgRelatedPosts Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Juve’s Pirlo gamble makes new Serie A season the most open for years Pirlo bags UEFA coaching badge Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined Roma on a season long loan deal from Arsenal. The Armenian international will spend the rest of this campaign at Serie A club Roma, who will pay the entirety of his wages. Mkhitaryan touched down in Rome ahead of the deadline day move on Monday morning before completing his medical. However, the Italian side are under no obligation, nor is there an option in the agreement, to sign Mkhitaryan next summer. Arsenal announced the signing and said: “Everyone at Arsenal wishes Micki all the best for his season with Roma.” Attacking midfielder Mkhitaryan, 30, has been deemed surplus to requirements by Unai Emery at the Emirates despite appearing off the bench in three of the Gunners’ four Premier League fixtures so far this season. Emery has been keen to slash the Gunners’ wage bill – with Alex Iwobi, Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Mohamed Elneny and Carl Jenkinson among the first-team players who have been allowed to ply their trade away from the Emirates. Mkhitaryan joined Arsenal in January 2018 as the other side of a sway deal with Manchester United for Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez. He has played 58 times for the Gunners, netting nine times, and is still under contract in north London until June 2021. Mkhitaryan’s last appearance for the Gunners came on Sunday when he came on as a 67th minute substitute for Alexandre Lacazette in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham. His first-team opportunities have been lowered this season after the signings of Dani Caballos and Nicolas Pepe.Tags: Arsenal FCAS RoaHenrikh MkhitaryanSerie Alast_img read more
