Arsenal midfielder Mkhitaryan in Italy today to sign for Roma

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is in Italy today to sign for AS Roma.

The Serie A giants are looking to bring the Armenian on loan until the end of the season with the option to make the deal permanent.

Sky Italia's Gianluca di Marzio says the transfer was driven by Roma sporting director Gianluca Petrachi, with the Arsenal midfielder currently in Rome for a medical.

It would bring an end to Mkhitaryan's one and a half year stay at the Emirates.

The former Borussia Dortmund star was involved in a swap deal with Alexis Sanchez who switched Arsenal for Manchester United.

Mkhitaryan has made 59 appearances for the Gunners, scoring nine goals since his winter move in 2018.
