Roma Set To Sign Arsenal’s Midfielder Mkhitaryan On Loan

By Brian Bariyo Tumuramye

Roma have reached an agreement with
Arsenal to sign midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan on a season-long loan deal.

The Italian club will pay a loan fee
and the 30-year-old’s wages, but there is no option or obligation to buy the
Armenia international.

Mkhitaryan joined the Gunners from
Manchester United in January 2018 in a swap deal involving Chile forward Alexis

He has scored nine goals in 59
appearances for Arsenal, Mkhitaryan featured as a second-half substitute in
Sunday’s 2-2 north London derby draw with Tottenham,
but has now travelled to the Italian capital to finalise his move.

His playing time at Emirates Stadium
was likely to be limited this season and Arsenal boss Unai Emery plans to use
his departure as a chance to give more minutes to young players.

The Premier League club also remain
open to letting defender Shkodran Mustafi go before Monday’s transfer deadline
– but it looks unlikely the 27-year-old German will leave.
