Former Lazio goalkeeper Nando Orsi feels that the fact that Inter and Roma are fighting to try and have Henrikh Mkhitaryan for next season is not a good sign for the ability of Serie A teams to attract and keep top-level player.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Radio Radio, Orsi gave the view that the calibre of player that the top teams in Italy are trying to sign is not high enough if the Nerazzurri and the Giallorossi are both making a big effort to sign the Armenian given his age.

Mkhitaryan looks to be a player who Inter have identified as a free transfer opportunity that’s too good to pass up, and they feel that even with the player turning 34 this year, he can still add quality and depth to their squad.

Meanwhile, the Giallorossi are still holding out hope that they can convince the midfielder to extend his deal, as he has been an important player for them in the season just gone.

In the view of Orsi, however, the fact that both clubs are so focused on Mkhitaryan shows that Italian teams have dropped a level.

“In Italy twe’re running out of ideas and clubs don’t have much money,” he said. “If Inter and Roma are fighting over Mkhitaryan who turns 34 soon, it means we’re in bad shape. Dybala, on the other hand, would be a great signing whoever gets him.”
