Inter Milan have confirmed the free transfer of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as Simone Inzaghi continues to reshape his squad for next season.
The Nerazzurri were beaten to the Serie A title by city rivals AC Milan last season, and they have gone straight to work on improving their playing staff in order to return to the top of Italian football.
Mkhitaryan is the latest player to arrive at San Siro, following the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku, Andre Onana, and talented prospect Kristjan Asllani in recent days.

The news was announced on Inter’s official website and social media, with the Armenian midfielder joining on a two-year contract after his contract with Roma expired on Thursday.
Mkhitaryan has had a glittering career playing for some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Between 2013 and 2016, he was a member of Borussia Dortmund before moving to England to join Manchester United.
He won the EFL Cup and the Europa League while at Old Trafford, scoring in the final against Ajax.
A move to Arsenal followed, before he tried his luck in the Italian capital with Roma.
Mkhitaryan spent three years, including a loan spell, at the Stadio Olimpico, making 117 appearances.
His final game would be Roma’s Europa Conference League final win over Feyenoord, though it was a bittersweet evening for Mkhitaryan because he was injured in the first half.
Inter will now hope that the 33-year-old can overcome his fitness issues and contribute to their title defence in 2022-23.
