Henrikh Mkhitaryan may join Roma on loan today & hopes Shkodran Mustafi may also leave Arsenal


Henrikh Mkhitaryan to leave Arsenal?

On Sunday, Henrikh Mkhitaryan was a second-half sub as Arsenal drew 2-2 with Tottenham.

Mkhitaryan replaced Alexandre Lacazette after the French forward requested to come off in the north London derby.

Mkhitaryan was picked for Arsenal’s opener this season as the Gunners won 1-0 at Newcastle.

The Armenian was left out the Arsenal XI against Burnley, while he’s been a sub against Liverpool and Spurs.

During Arsenal’s failed pursuit fo Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha, rumours spread that Arsenal may sell Mkhitaryan to fund that deal.

Today, rumours are flying about that Mkhitaryan may leave Arsenal today.

Mkhitaryan may join Roma on loan

September 2 is the final day of the European summer transfer window.

The Daily Mail report that Roma could land Mkhitaryan before the window closes:

Roma are hopeful of securing a loan deal for Arsenal winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan before the European transfer window shuts, according to Sky Sports Italy.

The Armenian, 30, has dropped down the pecking order in north London following the £72million arrival of Nicolas Pepe and emergence of young winger Reiss Nelson.

What we don’t know about Roma’s interest in Mkhitaryan

The Daily Mail fail to detail how Mkhitaryan’s loan could be structured.

One suspects Roma would need to pay Arsenal to sign Mkhitaryan, however the financial details aren’t revealed.

It’s also unclear if Roma would secure an option to buy Mkhitaryan if they close terms on the loan move.

Mkhitaryan’s Arsenal contract

Now 30, Mkhitaryan is under contract with Arsenal until 2021.

The Armenian captain joined the Gunners in January of 2018 from Man United.

Last season, Mkhitaryan scored six goals and chipped in with four assists in 25 Premier League matches.

Mkhitaryan scored six goals in 39 games in all competitions.

Can Arsenal shift Shkodran Mustafi?

According to Goal.com’s Charles Watts, it “could be a busy day at the Emirates” with regards to outgoings.

It’s reported that Arsenal believe that it’s “possible” Shkodran Mustafi leaves the Emirates Stadium today.

Unfortunately, Charles Watts fails to name any possible suitors for Mustafi.

In addition, it’s unclear is Mustafi would leave Arsenal as part of a loan deal or in a permanent transfer.
