Despite months of speculation, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to extend his stay in the Italian capital by penning a new deal with Roma.
SportItalia’s Alfredo Pedulla reports the Armenian is closing in on a contract renewal with the Giallorossi following a series of meetings between his entourage and the club. His current contract expires in June, but he’ll reportedly sign a multi-year extension with the capital club.
The ex-Dortmund man emerged as one of the team’s most crucial players despite initial question marks about his future following the appointment of Jose Mourinho.
He’s tallied five goals and nine assists in all competitions this season while adopting a new hybrid midfield role.
In-city rivals Lazio expressed interest singing Mkhitaryan on a free transfer, but the Armenian rejected all approaches in favor of extending his adventure in Rome.
