Arsenal are heavily linked with Manchester United star Henrikh Mkhitaryan and reports suggest that the Armenian could end up at the Emirates.
Yesterday, we covered a report (via multiple sources) claiming that the former Borussia Dortmund star, who earns around £200,000-a-week is closing in on a move to Arsenal.
Super agent Mino Raiola has recently claimed (The Times) that Mkhitaryan is key to Manchester United’s deal for Alexis Sanchez.
On the other hand, Daily Record have revealed that Mkhitaryan wants to become Arsenal’s highest earner if he is to complete the move.
Duncan Castles states that Raiola wants Henrikh to get the same level of wages that Arsenal were prepared to offer to Sanchez to renew his contract.
After researching some reports in the media from last year, we found that the biggest contract Arsenal reportedly offered Alexis was worth £300,000-a-week (via Daily Mail). Taking this into consideration, a contract worth £300,000-a-week could get Mkhitaryan signing done for Arsenal.
Arsenal lost their last league game against Bournemouth. Next up, they will collide against Crystal Palace on Saturday. In case you want to take a punt on who will be winning the match, you can always look for the best soccer betting tips.
As far as Mkhitaryan is concerned, he has been out of form this season and surely does not deserve a pay rise. At the moment, Arsenal’s highest earner is their record signing Alexandre Lacazette, who gets £200,000-a-week (Star). In your opinion, should Arsenal agree a deal worth £300,000-a-week to lure Mkhitaryan?
