Eden Dzeko wants Arsenal loanee Henrikh Mkhitaryan to make his stay at Roma a permanent one. 

The striker was an admirer of the Armenian’s talents before he joined the Serie A side and has been impressed so far. 

He told Sky Sports: ‘I expect it from him. I know him as a great player, and he is a very good addition to our attacking team who wants to play football.

‘I am one hundred per cent sure he is going to be a big help for us. I was definitely happy to see this transfer happen.’

Earlier this month, Mkhitaryan’s Armenia beat Dzeko’s Bosnia and Herzegovina 4-2 in a Euro qualifier with both men getting on the score sheet.  

Dzeko continued: ‘After we played for our national teams and he scored two goals against us I told him ‘my friend, next games you have to score for Roma as well!’

‘He’s a great pro. I remember him also from Borussia Dortmund times and he will be a big player for us. Hopefully, he can stay a long time here.

‘Hopefully he will [stay]. He will see that we are playing football here and immediately he scored a goal, so hopefully he can have more goals and a lot of assists for us.’
