Arsenal have been boosted in signing Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan as the midfielder has set his sights on making a switch to the Emirates. He has been in fine form for the German outfit, scoring 19 goals and registering 25 assists in all competitions in the 2015/16 season.
According to The Sun, the Gunners and their league rivals Chelsea have registered interest in signing the Armenian international. In addition to this, Arsenal's arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur have also expressed their desire in securing the 27-year-old's signature.
Mkhitaryan's impressive display for Dortmund has seen him attract interest from the top flight clubs in England. The midfielder is ready to snub advances from the west London club in order to join their city rivals Arsenal.
He has one year left on his contract at Signal Iduna Park. The talented player's agent Mino Raiola has hinted that his client's stay at Dortmund remains uncertain after admitting Mkhitaryan is considering his future.
"Why should we extend now? Miki has a contract that runs through 2017 and we're going to keep considering his future," Raiola explained, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
The report also suggests that even Juventus are in the race to land Mkhitaryan. Dortmund value their star midfielder around £20m ($29.3m) and Arsenal are believed to be in the driving seat to win his signature.
Earlier in May, Mkhitaryan's representative hinted a move to Juventus could be on the cards after admitting the Old Lady's coach Massimiliano Allegri is an admirer of the versatile midfielder.
"I know that Allegri likes him. And Micky would happily wear the Bianconeri shirt, but he needs to make a deal with Tuchel. It's true that his contract expires in 2017, but the Dortmund coach deems him indispensable," Raiola said, as reported by The Sun.
