Arsenal will need a top quality playmaker to replace Alexis Sanchez and it looks like Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be joining the Gunners.
Multiple reports have suggested that the Armenian international is close to signing for the North Londoners.
Daily Star reported that Alexis will join the Old Trafford club in a £40million deal and Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be moving to the Emirates.
Renowned Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol tweeted that as per Sky Italy, Man United have agreed terms with Sanchez and are just waiting for Arsenal to agree terms with Mkhitaryan.
On the other hand, renowned French source Le10Sport exclusively revealed that Arsenal have accepted United’s offer for Alexis and that would see Mkhitaryan move to the Emirates.
The 28-year-old attacker joined the Red Devils before the start of last season, his current contract with the club will expire in 2020 and he earns (Guardian) around £200,000-a-week ($276,000-a-week).
It will be interesting to see the wage package that Arsenal will be able to agree with the former Dortmund star, who has been out of form this season. So far, he has only scored once in 15 league outings in the current campaign.
