Arsenal set to sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Roma in summer transfer window but Serie A giants won’t meet £15m valuation – The Sun

ARSENAL remain eager to shift forgotten man Henrikh Mkhitaryan but Roma are unwilling to pay their £15million asking price, according to reports.

The Gunners deemed the Armenian as surplus to requirements last summer.

This decision was made despite the 31-year-old having appeared in three of their first four matches in the Premier League this season.

Roma took Mkhitaryan to Serie A on Italy's Deadline Day, paying around £2.6million to borrow him for the year.

And boss Paulo Fonseca is keen on making the deal permanent.

He previously told Russian TV show Great Football: "I want him to stay and he also wants to stay.

"However, it should be clear that everything is now on hiatus, and we’ll have to talk to Arsenal.

“I want to continue working with him because he’s a great player and a great man."

According to Calcio Mercato, however, Fonseca's bosses at Roma are unwilling to pay the £15m asking price.

The coronavirus pandemic has thrown most clubs into financial uncertainty, with Roma no exception.
