Video: Could this in-form Arsenal player have helped us this term?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan‘s Arsenal future appears to be over, with the midfielder being allowed to extend his stay with Roma for another season, but looking at his performances this term, he could well have helped us instead.

The all-time top goalscorer for Armenia enjoyed an amazing campaign for the Serie A giants, scoring nine goals and grabbing six assists in all competitions, despite starting the campaign being rotated into the side.

Mkhi earned himself a key role in the latter stages of the term, and is now keen to continue that form going into the new season.

While I’m happy for HM to have found his form again, I can’t help but think that our side may not have struggled throughout the campaign had we had an extra man to provide and score goals from midfield, with our current crop of players having struggled.

Not a single midfielder scored more than one Premier League goal, nor did a single Arsenal midfielder get credited with more than two assists, and part of me had hoped that Mikel Arteta would have been able to bring Mkhi back to the Emirates to continue his fine form, but a deal is already claimed to be in place for Mkhi to stay with Roma into the new campaign.

Would the 31 year-old have refound his form if he had been given a role at Arsenal this season? Should we have considered bringing him back this summer?

    I have always rated HM he started really well then got injured and just as he was getting match fit we got rid of him his not only great at offense his also works hard in defense, if he wasn’t on Arsenal Books we would all be saying sign him he is so much mor3 than Ozil

    Glad he’s doing well again. Glad he cares about his career and wants to play football. Good luck Mhiki! Would he have helped us if he stayed this season, maybe, but I’m pretty satisfied that he went out on loan and did well. Can’t say we missed him when it was really just not happening for him here.

    Bottom line, Miki’s chance to succeed in the Prem was hijacked by two suspect managers. Jose didn’t even play Miki for the first 3 months he was at United, and really messed with his confidence. Then Emery came along and asked him to do things, that although he wasn’t equipped to do, he tried to maintain a good attitude and bit the bullet for the team. Lest we forget that one time a fullback got a red (think it was AMN) and instead of making a substitution, Miki was moved to FB. That is terrible man management. Would have loved to see what Arteta could have done with him.
