Henrikh Mkhitryan has undergone his medical in Italy ahead of completing his last-ditch loan move from Arsenal to Roma.
The Armenian midfielder, who has largely been a disappointing signing from Manchester United, touched down at Fiumicino Airport at around 10am and swiftly held up a Roma scarf for fans and photographers, also posing for pictures with excited fans.
Mkhitryan is set to seal a season-long loan deal, with Roma having an option to buy him at the end of the season.
