Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are all readying bids for Henrikh Mkhitaryan after it has emerged that Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing him this summer.
The highly-rated Armenian is out of contract in 2017 and, despite trying to persuade him to extend his current deal for another year, Dortmund are now set to cash in on him.
According to Bild, the German club will accept a fee of around £23million for Mkhitaryan, which could spark a bidding war between Arsenal, Chelsea and United.
New United boss Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the playmaker and is eager to snap him up this summer, while Chelsea are also desperate to capture an attacking midfielder.
Mkhitaryan enjoyed a fine season for Thomas Tuchel’s side, scoring 18 goals in 48 appearances for the Bundesliga runners-up.
