Henrikh Mkhitryan has travelled out to Roma for a medical ahead of a last-ditch loan move from Arsenal, according to reports.
The news was confirmed by Roma Radio on Monday morning and he is due to land at Fiumicino Airport at 9:55am.
It is reported that the Armenian star will seal a season-long loan deal with Roma having an option to buy at the end of the season.
The Serie A outfit will pay a loan fee as well as covering the 30-year-old’s wages for the duration of the loan.
He has struggled for form since joining the Gunners from Manchester United in an exchange deal with Alexis Sanchez – who has already departed for Inter Milan this summer.
Mkhitaryan came off the bench in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with north London rivals Tottenham on Sunday but now looks ready to leave the Emirates Stadium.
