Roma are reportedly going to try to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan today on loan before the European transfer window closes.
There had been talk over the summer that Arsenal wanted to move Henrikh Mkhitaryan on in order to free up some wages from their books. Due to the large amount Arsenal pay him, there was very little interest and when the window closed in England, all went deathly quiet on the Mkhitaryan front.
Now, according to reports from mainland Europe, Roma are ‘working on the arrival’ of Mkhitaryan who is apparently on his way to the city:

Gazetta believe that an agreement has already been found with the player. Gianluca DiMarzio is also reporting that Roma are ‘very close’ to signing the player who would sign on loan with an option to buy.
The Armenian came on in the second half against Spurs and failed to make much of an impact on the game as Arsenal fans wondered which Mkhitaryan would show up. Sadly, it was the one who has disappointed rather than the star who occasionally shines.
And that, unfortunately, has been the story of Mkhitaryan’s career since he decided to move to England.
