Arsenal: Henrik Mkhitaryan to leave the club and join Roma permanently

Arsenal: Henrik Mkhitaryan to leave the club and join Roma permanently - Arsenal Transfer Rumours

It seems that Arsenal are deciding on the future of some of their players, with attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan one man who is now deemed surplus to requirements.

Fabrizio Romano, a journalist for Sky Sports Italy, broke the news on Twitter that Mkhitaryan will be staying at Serie A side Roma after they agreed a permanent deal with the Gunners.

The 31-year-old has been on loan at the Giallorossi this season and, while the transfer fee is unknown, it seems that a deal was struck pretty easily and now the Armenian can focus on his future with the Italian outfit.

The 31 year-old has played 19 times for Roma, scoring six goals and picking up four assists, per Transfermarkt. He has also averaged 1.3 shots per game and 1.2 key passes a game, per WhoScored.

These are some pretty impressive stats, which show that he is enjoying his time in Italy, and perhaps highlights why it is a good move for both him and Arsenal due to the fact that he had only managed nine goals for the north London side in 59 appearances, per Transfermarkt.

His time at Arsenal, as well as his advancing age, means that the Gunners probably weren’t going to get much more out of him, while the funds they will receive from selling him can now be put towards signing younger players chosen by Mikel Arteta rather than inherited.
