Here we can see URL, Navigation Label & Title Attribute under Menu Structure >> Home. I need there a more option called "Data Description".

I have a task to write menu code like below with wordpress.

<a href="[URL]" data-description="[Data Description]">[Navigation Label]</a>

Is there any option to display my menu dynamically like this? Also It should support "current-menu-item" class on current page.

I'm a wordpress theme developer & also have some knowledge of plugins development, If there are any way please suggest me.
