Henrikh Mkhitaryan wants to leave Arsenal this summer as Roma make £20m transfer decision

Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan is reportedly desperate to leave Arsenal this summer to make his move to Roma permanent.

The 31-year-old is currently on loan in the Italian capital, having been shipped out by Unai Emery last September.

Mkhitaryan has underwhelmed for the Gunners since he was involved in a swap deal with Alexis Sanchez and Manchester United.

And now just like Sanchez, the former Borussia Dortmund man finds himself in the Serie A having failed to impress in the Premier League.

A series of thigh strains have hindered the first half of Mkhitaryan’s spell with Roma, and he has started just six games so far this season.

The Armenia captain managed to take his scoring boots with him to Italy though as he has found the back of the net an impressive four times.

Mkhitaryan is keen to stay on in the Italian capital, with the Gunners understood to be open to selling him.

However, according to the Sun, Arsenal have slapped a £20m price tag on his head, and that is well above what Roma are willing to pay for him.

That means that Mkhitaryan is likely to return come the end of the season, unless the north London side lower their valuation for the player who recently claimed he “wasn’t happy” at the club.

“Arsenal made me promises at the beginning of the season but after just two weeks those promises weren’t kept,“ Mkhitaryan said.

“So when my agent called me to propose the idea of joining Roma, I didn’t think twice.

“I didn’t even discuss finances. I wasn’t fitting so well in English football so I thought a change would be good.

“I no longer felt happy and from day one there have been no regrets about joining Roma, where I have really felt the appreciation of the supporters and the club.”
