Roma ask Arsenal to pay portion of Mkhitaryan’s wages to help complete permanent deal


ESPN has reported that Roma want Arsenal to pay a chunk of Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s £180,000-a-week wage to complete a permanent move to the Italian capital.

The former Dortmund man has made it clear he would like to remain with the Giallorossi after having joined the club on loan in the latter stages of last summer’s transfer market.

Mkhitaryan has just over one year remaining on his contract with the Gunners but, reportedly, Roma don’t appear ready to match his wage requirements and have requested that Arsenal provide help in getting a permanent deal over the line.

Arsenal have made it clear that the Armenian is considered a surplus to requirements and they’re willing to allow him to leave. However, they’re hoping to net over €11 million from his sale.

The English side could ultimately agree to lower their transfer fee request or also by agreeing to top up his wage for the remainder of his contract, but it remains to be seen what will come of talks between the two clubs.

Mikel Arteta’s side are to remove the attacker from their wage bill while both Mkhitaryan and Roma are keen on finding an agreement to keep him in Rome.
