Henrikh Mkhitaryan has remained coy on his future beyond this season after joining AS Roma on a season-long loan deal from Arsenal.

The Armenia international was shipped out to the Italian club at the end of the summer transfer window after he was deemed to be surplus to requirements at The Emirates by Unai Emery.

The move came despite the fact that Mkhitaryan featured during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at The Emirates at the weekend.

Mkhitaryan’s future at Arsenal looks bleak considering the loan move, but the player himself says he will assess his situation at the end of the season depending on how well he has performed for AS Roma.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Mkhitaryan said: “Well, let’s first see about what I can do in Roma.

“Then at the end of the season I think we can talk if I will have the possibility to stay or to go or to do something else, I don’t know.

“But now I cannot say about my future. It is better to be focused on the upcoming games.”

Arsenal will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Watford away from home on Sunday 15 September.

The north London side are aiming to try and break back into the top four this season after they finished in fifth place and without a trophy under Emery last term.

Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
