Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for his second signing of the summer transfer window after the arrival of Granit Xhaka at The Emirates last month.

Now, football expert Emanuele Giulianelli is claiming that Wenger is in talks with Mkhitaryan’s representatives about bringing the 27-year-old to the north London club this summer.

He tweeted:

Wenger is thought to be keen to revamp his squad at The Emirates as he prepares for what could end up being his last season in charge of Arsenal, with his contract set to expire next summer.

Arsenal finished second in the Premier League table last season.
