Arsenal close to signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan for $36 mln

PanARMENIAN.Net - Arsenal are stepping up their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund ace Henrikh Mkhitaryan. That is despite growing uncertainty over landing Leicester striker Jamie Vardy, The Sun says.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to wrap up a quick deal for Borussia Dortmund’s £25million-rated (over $36 million) Armenia midfielder.

Juventus, Liverpool and Tottenham are also keen on Mkhitaryan, 27.

The German side are ready to sell the player, who only has one year left on his current contract.

Mkhitaryan joined Dortmund from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013 and has been a key player for both Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.
