Roma extend Henrikh Mkhitaryan loan

AS Roma have announced that Henrikh Mkhitaryan's loan from Arsenal has been extended till the end of the current season.


Apart from this, the club has also held a preliminary agreement with Arsenal for him to stay for the 2020/21 season as well.


The Armenian's contract at Arsenal expires on June 2021, and if he continues to impress, Roma will be keen to sign him permanently.


Speaking on the extension, Mkhitaryan expressed his happiness, saying that he is "very happy" to stay at the club, "because I still have things that I haven't achieved yet that I want to achieve."


He also added that the club is going to "try to do everything possible to earn as many points" as possible in the remaining ten games of the season, wanting to be a big part of the team, aiming to "start lots of games", whilst also being "ready to help the team" when coming off of the bench.


Roma play against Udinese on Thursday, as they aim to recover from their devastating 2-0 defeat against AC Milan last weekend, in a bid to secure a European spot.
