Reports from the German media, English media and the Armenian media have all confirmed that Arsenal and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been in talks in regards to a move to the Emirates this summer. The Armenia national team captain has reportedly rejected all Dortmund overturn for a new contract preferring to instead move away from the club.
It was initially said that Dortmund are not ready to let him go and will rather let him see out his contract but Kicker on Tuesday confirmed Dortmund have had a change of mind and will let the player go for the right price. A look at the page’s wikipedia page shows he is listed as an Arsenal player. Read what you want into that, but it could well be that someone knows something that has not been made official yet.
This has happened many times. Before Arsenal released the pictures from Granit Xhaka’s photoshot, the picture was every where on facebook, twitter and instragram. Could the same thing be playing out here? Very possible. Everything points to the fact that Mkhitaryan will be an Arsenal player hence this summer, in the winter or next summer when he will join on a free transfer.
