If there is one player aside Vardy Arsenal fans are keenly wanting their club to sign, that player is Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Ordinarilly, one would think Arsenal have no chance of signing the player as he was the best player in the Bundesliga last season and should be expected to be in hot demands due to the fact that he is almost at the end of his contract with Dortmund.
However, most of the best clubs do not have need for Mkhitaryan and with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United not playing in the Champions League next season, the Gunners all of a sudden have a good chance of signing the Dortmund contract rebel.
And according to Kicker, Dortmund are now ready to sell the player and what’s more, Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolò Schira of Italy has confirmed Arsenal have made an opening bid of €30 million for the player.
This much was confirmed by the Italian on twitter when he tweeted the following; “Talks ongoing for Henri Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal. [Arsenal manager Arsène] Wenger has offered 30 € milion for him,”
From all indication, Mkhitaryan will be playing for Arsenal next season. Dortmund are in a difficult position ( like we were with Robin Van Persie ) and have no choice than to sell him as they will know they are better off taking €30 million and reinvest it in their squad rather than lose the player.
