Roma attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to renew his contract with the club until 2022, according to Sky Sport.
The 31 year-old initially signed a one-year contract that was set to expire in June 2021 but his new deal will keep in the Eternal City until at least June 2022.
The Armenian has been the Giallorossi’s most important player so far this campaign with 8 goals and 7 assists to his name and has been roundly praised by manager Paulo Fonseca, who stated that Mkhitaryan is “one of the most intelligent players I’ve ever managed.”
Mkhitaryan completed a free transfer to Roma from Arsenal this summer following a successful loan spell in the Italian capital last season.
He has quickly become a favorite among Roma supporters thanks to not only his play on the pitch, but also his professionalism off of it.
Last year, it took the ex-Dortmund man only a few weeks from arriving in the country to learn to speak basic Italian. He’s now fluent in the language and often handles media duty for the team in the post-match.
