Arsenal transfer reports: Top Gunners target Henrikh Mkhitaryan turns down new Borussia Dortmund contract
Borussia Dortmund playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has snubbed the chance to extend his contract, amid reported interest from Arsenal.
The 27-year-old bagged 23 goals last season, while he also weighed in with a staggering 32 assists in all competitions.
That from has sparked interest from Arsenal, who have been tracking the attacking midfielder since January.
And now the Gunners have been given a boost in their pursuit as, according to Bild, Mkhitaryan is refusing to sign a new contract at the Westfalenstadion.
The Armenian’s current deal expires in a year’s time and Dortmund are desperate for him to pen an extension.
If Mkhitaryan won’t agree a new contract than the German club may be forced to sell him this summer – or risk losing him on a free next year.
