Report: Roma want permanent deal for Mkhi

Roma are reportedly working hard to secure a permanent deal for Arsenal loanee Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Armenia international has been struggling with a series of injuries since his move to the Olimpico but has still managed to score six goals in his 13 League appearances for the Giallorossi.

A tear in the adductor muscle in late September made for a difficult start for the 31-year-old and he struggled with his fitness on his first return in November.

Lazio face Lovren competition

Lazio face competition from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur when it comes to Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren.

The Aquile had already approached him during the January transfer window, but were not prepared to pay the €20m asking price.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, that has now dropped significantly, because his contract expires in June 2021 and he has no intention of extending.

Lovren turns 31 in July and has been with the Reds since the summer of 2014, so is eager for a new experience.

Despite Italian football being very popular throughout the 1990s in the UK, it wasn’t watched by everyone.

For some, the only glimpse they got of Batistuta was at USA ’94 and France ’98 with Argentina.
