Roma, Arsenal agree to loan extension for Mkhitaryan


After sweating the prospect of losing him at the end of June, Roma can breathe a sigh of relief as they have finally come to an agreement with Arsenal to extend Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s loan for the remainder of the season thru August.

The loan deal for the Armenian was set to expire tomorrow, 30th June, and the Giallorossi were worried that they wouldn’t have the attacker at their disposal for month of July or for their Europa League tie against Sevilla in August.

Meanwhile, the club is still negotiating with Manchester United to find the same agreement for Chris Smalling.

The Red Devils have given the OK for the defender to remain through July, but as of now, there is no agreement to allow Smalling to participate in Roma’s Europa League tie, according to Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo.
