Henrikh Mkhitaryan's career at Arsenal is over.

AS Roma announced Mkhitaryan's loan stay has been extended until the end of the season and they have reached a preliminary agreement over a deal to sign the Armenian international permanently for the 2020-21 campaign.

"I'm very pleased," Mkhitaryan said.

"I'm happy to extend my stay here, because I still have things that I haven’t achieved yet that I want to achieve.

"I’m looking forward to it."

The attacking midfielder made the temporary move to Italy last summer after a disappointing 18-month spell at Arsenal.

Mkhitaryan struggled to establish himself as a key contributor in north London - scoring eight goals and recording eight assists in 39 Premier League appearances - after joining the Gunners from Manchester United in a swap deal for Alexis Sanchez.

The 31-year-old has six goals and four assists in 15 Serie A matches for Roma this season.
