Arsenal's attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined Italian club A.S Roma on a permanent deal after spending a season-long loan with the club in the 2019/2020 season.

Mkhitaryan joined Roma after making just three appearances for Arsenal in the 2019/2020 season. In his loan spell in Italy, he scored nine goals and provided five assists for Roma in the Italian Serie A.

Due to his excellent performance for Roma in the 2019/2020 season, the club decided to make his deal permanent and discussed with Arsenal, who mutually cancelled Mkhitaryan's contract, allowing him to stay at Roma on a permanent deal.
