Arsenal, Man United wait for £30m midfielder to make decision on future – report

Borussia Dortmund playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to make a decision about his future amid Premier League interest

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is set to make a decision on his future this week amid reported interest from Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder was one of Europe’s most-creative playmakers in the 2015-16 season after an impressive return of 11 goals and 15 assists in 31 Bundesliga appearances.

Mkhitaryan sparked speculation surrounding his long-term future at Westfalenstadion after rejecting the chance to sign a new long-term deal with the German side earlier this year.

Arsenal and United are thought to be keen to sign the Armenia international, with the midfielder’s agent Mino Raiola already thought to be working with the Red Devils over a deal for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

According to Bild, Mkhitaryan has confirmed his desire to move to the Premier League in the summer transfer window following a three-year spell at the Bundesliga runners-up.
