Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been handed a bitter blow today, after comments revealed a star target of theirs prefers to move to a Premier League rival.
‘Manchester United is a unique opportunity, Micki wants to go there.’
The 27-year-old excelled in the Bundesliga last season but has refused to sign a new deal with Dortmund and, with his current contract expiring next summer, the German giants run the risk of losing the player for nothing in 12 months.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with Mkhitaryan’s services, and were previously regarded as favourites in the race, but comments from the player’s agent have turned this transfer tussle on his head- and our landlord believes it’s a massive blow for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Which club should Mkhitaryan join? Let us know in the comments below!
