AS Roma head coach Paolo Fonseca says he would love his employers to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Arsenal on a permanent basis, according to Evening Standard.
Unhappy about his situation in North London under Unai Emery – manager at the time, Mkhitaryan left the Emirates to join Roma last summer on a season-long loan in search of regular game-time for a loan fee of €3 million. His spell in the Italian capital so far has been riddled with injuries, but he has now regained full fitness and Fonseca feels his quality is really starting to come through.
The Roma boss was particularly impressed by his performance in the 4-0 win over Lecce on Sunday, where the Armenian scored his second goal in the last four games, but he most of all praised his ability to make right decisions on the pitch.
Mkhitaryan turned 31 last month and is under contract with Arsenal until the summer of 2021.
