Henrikh Mkhitaryan has reached a verbal agreement with Inter for next season, reports Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport.
The Armenian attacker is strongly pursued by the Nerazzurri as he enters free agency ahead of the summer window.
Earlier reports claimed that the player had already agreed to a two-year contract with Inter.
Reportedly, Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio contacted Roma general manager Tiago Pinto to confirm that the Nerazzurri have initiated negotiations for the 33-year-old attacking midfielder.
Despite this, Roma still hope to be able to convince Mkhitaryan to stay in the Italian capital and continue his tenure with the club.
