By | April 6, 2020

Serie A giants AS Roma have reportedly already had two offers for Henrikh Mkhitaryan turned down by Arsenal.

The 31-year-old has spent the 2019-20 season on loan with Italian giants, founding back of the net six times and providing four assists in 20 games for the Italian outfit in all competitions.

As it stands, the former Dortmund forward will make a return to the Emirates Stadium in the summer, however, the Serie A giants are believed to be keen on a permanent basis.

According to The Express, AS Roma have had two offers for the Armenia international forward – the latest of which was in the region of £10m – turned down by the North London club.

The report suggests that Mikel Arteta’s side are looking for around £18m for the talented forward, who has a current deal with his parent team until the end of the 2020-21 season.

Mkhitaryan has found back of the net nine times and provided 13 assists in 59 games for the Gunners since joining the capital team from Manchester United back in January 2018.

Mikel Arteta is believed to be a huge admirer of the Armenia international forward and keen on to keep him at the Emirates Stadium ahead of the next season.
