Arsenal prepare Henrikh Mkhitaryan move

Mkhitaryan attracts Gunners interest

Arsenal are believed to be exploring a summer deal for Borussia Dortmund attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Armenia international has been a consistent performer for the Dortmund giants since his switch from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013.

Mkhitaryan, 27, has had a great showing for BVB this term, combining well with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the attack front.

German sports daily Bild suggests that the Gunners are likely to step up their interest in the talented playmaker following his excellent progress in Bundesliga this campaign.

Arsenal are also known to have come to this decision after top target Aubameyang revealed his desire to stay put at Signal Iduna Park.

League rivals Liverpool had previously been credited with interest for Mkhitaryan before he made his switch to Germany.

Mkhitaryan has notched 15 goals and 18 assists in all competitions for BVB this season.
