Arsenal offered hope by agent in pursuit of £31m Dortmund midfielder

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to make a decision about his Dortmund future, according to Arsenal target's agent

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to decide his future within the next 10 days, according to the Borussia Dortmund midfielder’s agent.

The Armenia international has failed to agree a new contract with the Bundesliga club after another impressive season in the German top flight.

Mkhitaryan has just over a year remaining on his current Dortmund deal which has alerted interest from Premier League side Arsenal in recent months.

However, the Gunners are expected to face competition from their domestic rivals Chelsea and Liverpool, who attempted to sign the playmaker in 2014.

Mkhitaryan’s agent handed the playmaker’s suitors a boost after he provided an update on the Dortmund star’s future ahead of the end of the season.

“Nothing has been decided,” Mino Raiola told Bild. “But in the next ten days, there should be more clarity.”

The 27-year-old has netted 11 goals and has made 15 assists in 31 Bundesliga games for Thomas Tuchel’s Europa League quarter-finalists this term.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp signed the Armenian playmaker in a deal ahead of the Reds in 2013.
