Manchester United have made enquiries about the possibility of signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund, say reports

Manchester United have joined the likes of Arsenal in the race to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are preparing to bring in a number of players during the summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho looks to stamp his authority at Old Trafford.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Juventus are also believed to be in the running to land Mkhitaryan this summer.

But Gianluca Di Marzio is now reporting that United have already made enquiries about the player’s situation as Mourinho looks to secure his first signing since being appointed as the club’s new manager last week.

Mkhitaryan, who scored 18 goals and made 20 assists last season, has long been linked with a transfer to the Premier League.
