​Mkhitaryan pushing Arsenal for permanent Roma move

Arsenal winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan wants to leave the club permanently.

The Armenian star has been enjoying his loan at AS Roma this season.

Now he has fallen in love with the city, and recently had his first child Hamlet in the capital as well.

Now the Daily Mail suggests that he wants to stay put for the near future.

However, reports in Italy claim Roma do not want to pay more than €12 million for Mkhitaryan, while Arsenal want closer to €20 million.

The club are also having some uncertainty around their sporting director Gianluca Petrachi's future, which could complicate any deal for Mkhitaryan.
