Roma striker Dzeko wants Arsenal loanee Mkhitaryan to stay

Roma striker Eden Dzeko wants Arsenal loanee Henrikh Mkhitaryan to sign permanently.

The striker was an admirer of the Armenian's talents before he joined the Serie A side and has been impressed so far.

He told Sky Sports: "I expect it from him. I know him as a great player, and he is a very good addition to our attacking team who wants to play football.

"He's a great pro. I remember him also from Borussia Dortmund times and he will be a big player for us. Hopefully, he can stay a long time here.

"Hopefully he will [stay]. He will see that we are playing football here and immediately he scored a goal, so hopefully he can have more goals and a lot of assists for us."
