Midfielder Leaves Arsenal For New Club On Loan

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has left the club to join Italian Serie A giants AS Roma on loan for the rest of the season.

His loan transfer to AS Roma was confirmed by the Italian capital club on Monday evening.

AS Roma will pay €3m as his loan fee plus add-ons that could be as much as €100,000.

In addition, AS Roma will pay his weekly wages though it must be pointed out that there’s no permanent transfer clause in his loan contract at the Italian club.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored 9 goals in 59 appearances for Arsenal until his loan move to AS Roma earlier this week.

He joined Arsenal from Premier League rivals Manchester United at the start of 2018 in a swap deal which saw Alexis Sanchez move in the other direction.

Just like Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alexis Sanchez has joined an Italian club on loan for the rest of the season.

Alexis Sanchez has gone to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan on loan without the option of a permanent deal.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan played his last game for Arsenal during the North London Derby clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Armenian international came on as a second half substitute for the injured Alexandre Lacazette.
