The representative of Henrikh Mkhitaryan has insisted that the forward has not sent any message to Arsenal regarding a possible summer departure.

A recent report from Corriere dello Sport quoted Mkhitaryan saying that his time in London is over and he would prefer to join Roma on a permanent deal.

However, this has been quickly dismissed by Raiola on Instagram. He branded the news as fake and completely unacceptable with the current global situation.

"Mkhitaryan did not send any message to Arsenal," He said on his Instagram account. "Especially in times like these, fake news is completely unacceptable."

Mkhitaryan, who has less than 14 months remaining on his Gunners contract, is presently on loan with Roma, where he has bagged six goals and four assists from 17 outings this term.

Roma are keen on signing him on a permanent basis during the summer but the north London side have made it clear that they won't accept anything less than £15m for his departure.
