AS Roma have repeatedly made their intentions clear with regards to Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

They want to sign the player from Arsenal on a permanent transfer, having taken him from the Gunners on loan in the last summer window.

Mikel Arteta and Arsenal are unlikely to put up much of a fight, despite the manager speaking positively about the player recently. Mkhitaryan hasn’t managed to impress enough since moving from Manchester United to the London club.

Gazzetta dello Sport report ‘negotiations are underway’ to make sure the 31 year old can stay where he is beyond the end of his loan deal.

AS Roma are also hoping to keep Chris Smalling, on loan from Manchester United, on a longer term deal, and Arsenal have been linked with the defender.

For Mkhitaryan, much is going to depend on the fee Arsenal want, and also the length of contract desired by the footballer. Should he want a three year deal, that could be difficult given his age.
