Fonseca has become a big fan of Mkhitaryan and has expressed his desire to make the loan permanent, although current football suspensions have plunged the season into uncertainty.

And according to the Sun, his agent Mino Raiola is hinting that the Armenian would sign a new contract with Arsenal on half his £180,000-a-week wages if he can stay on loan with the Serie A side.

He had actually been discovering his ideal type for Roma right before coronavirus brought the period to a grinding stop, racking up 3 objectives as well as helping 2 in 4 Serie A suits.

"When I was at Arsenal, I had different things asked from me by the coach, people were expecting different things from here", Mkhitaryan explained in an interview with The Times.

"The viewpoint of Emery was various from Fonseca, yet below I'm really feeling much better since we're playing better football as well as I assume it matched me".

The Armenian's loan spell expires in June and does not include an option to buy, but does he want to stay at the Olimpico beyond this summer?

However, Mkhitaryan refused to rule out the return to Arsenal - which is now under the leadership of Mikel Arteta - saying "I can't say anything yet as the season is over, we don't know when we will start playing again and what will happen in summer".

"Football changes so quickly". One day you're here, the other you're there.

"We're trying", he claimed. "It's not easy. In this hard moment you can't do many things". You can just stay at home to be risk-free as well as delay for whatever to be settled.

"Then in the evening I'm trying to watch a movie, with the family or sometimes on my own".

"When I listened to the circumstance had not been the most effective as well as every person was asking us to stay at home, I quit going outdoors for a stroll or a run".

He also explained how the training continues despite the blocking of Italy, adding: "We have the team program for home training, so I try to keep myself in shape".

Mkhitaryan like many in the nation is having to sit out the coronavirus outbreak which has devastated the country with over 7,500 lives now lost.
