Henrikh Mkhitaryan has joined Serie A side AS Roma on a permanent basis. Micki leaves us following his season-long loan in Italy. We have agreed to terminate his contract with us by mutual consent to allow him to join Roma in a permanent move.
The Armenia international joined us from Manchester United in January 2018 and memorably marked his first Premier League start for us with a hat-trick of assists in a 5-1 win over Everton. During his time with us, Micki helped us reach the 2019 Europa League final and he claimed a total of 13 assists and scored nine goals in all competitions as a Gunner. A history maker for his country, Micki is Armenia’s all-time top goalscorer and has been named Armenian Footballer of the Year nine times.
Everyone at Arsenal thanks Micki for his contribution to the club and wishes him all the best for his future with Roma.
