23-Goal Attacker To Decide Over £24m Arsenal, Chelsea Or Man Utd Move This Week
Borussia Dortmund attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan will make a decision over his proposed £24m move to Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester United this week.
The opening of the summer transfer window is fast approaching so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Henrikh Mkhitaryan to make a decision over his future this week….
Borussia Dortmund attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan will make a decision over his proposed £24m move to Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester United this week, according to Bild via the Express.
Mkhitaryan has become one of the most sought after players of the summer transfer market as he has just entered the final year of his contract and has failed to agree terms over an extension.
It’s left Dortmund in a position where they’ll be forced to cash in this summer if he doesn’t sign a new deal soon as otherwise the German giants risk losing the Armenian international for nothing next year.
Mkhitaryan has just come off the back of a sensational season that saw him score 23 goals and provide a staggering 32 assists in all competitions so understandably there is no shortage of interest being shown in his services.
The Express claim that the 27-year-old is keen on making a move to the Premier League this summer with Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd ready to pay £23.8m for his signature.
It looks like the trio will find out soon enough whether they’ve been successful in their pursuit as Bild are quoting Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc as saying that a decision will be made this week.
“We will make a decision [on Mkhitaryan’s future] this week!”
So it looks like we should known soon where Mkhitaryan will be playing next season and he would be a superb signing for any of the three English clubs reportedly in the race for his signature.
Arsenal could be eyeing the Armenian as a replacement for Theo Walcott with the England international tipped to leave the Emirates after losing his place last season while incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is expected to over haul his squad this summer and Mkhitaryan would add some much-needed creativity to the Blues team.
However, new United boss Jose Mourinho is also desperate to add more threat to his attack after watching the Red Devils score just 49 league goals last season and Mkhitaryan would be the ideal addition at Old Trafford.
We’ll have to wait and see how things develop over the coming days but Arsenal could see themselves as favourites given the fact they are the only one of the three clubs able to offer the attacker Champions League football next season.
