Italian side Roma want to continue their transfer spree by signing Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan on loan. 

Roma have already signed nine players this summer including Davide Zappacosta from Chelsea and Chris Smalling from Manchester United on loan.

Sky Sports has reported that Armenian international Mkhitaryan is in Rome to finalise the deal. It is believed Roma will pay a loan fee as well as his wages, but do not have an option to buy at the end of the season.

Mkhitaryan joined Arsenal in January 2018 from Manchester United as part of the deal that saw Alexis Sanchez move in the other direction.

During his time at the Emirates, he has made 59 appearances and scored 9 goals.

The loan deal suits all parties. Roma were in the lookout for an attacking midfielder, while Mkhitaryan was likely to have a limited amount of playing time this season. It also means some of Arsenal’s young players, such as Reiss Nelson, will have more of a chance.
