July 2 (Reuters) – Inter Milan have signed Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan following his departure from fellow Italian side AS Roma, the Serie A team said on Saturday.

The 33-year-old, who has also played for German’s Borussia Dortmund and English teams Manchester United and Arsenal, excelled for Roma last season, but could not agree a contract extension.

Inter did not provide details of Mkhitaryan’s contract but media reports said he had signed a two-year deal.

Mkhitaryan’s arrival followed those of Cameroon goalkeeper Andre Onana, Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku on a season-long loan from Chelsea and Albania midfielder Kristjan Asllani from Empoli.

Inter have also been linked with a move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala.

The 2021 Italian champions finished second behind AC Milan last season.
