Inter are not quite ready to complete the signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan on a free transfer from Roma as their medical staff want to wait until he is recovered from injury to make their assessments.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Nerazzurri’s move for the 33-year-old is held up until they are able to complete the medicals for the deal.

Everything is in place for Inter to sign Mkhitaryan on a free transfer after the Armenian decided to reject the final contract extension offer from Roma to agree on a move to the Nerazzurri, pending his medicals.

However, the medicals are delayed until the Nerazzurri’s medical staff feel that the midfielder has recovered sufficiently from the muscle injury which he picked up playing for the Giallorossi in the Europa Conference League final against Feyenoord.

Once the Armenian is recovered from that injury setback, everything should be in place for the move to be completed.
