Borussia Dortmund attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been a subject to intense summer transfer battle for last few weeks with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all after his signature.
However, earlier today we got somewhat constructive confirmation about where the 27-year old forward will play his football next season. According to the social media buzz, Henrikh’s sister Monika Mkhitaryan followed Arsenal football club on LinkedIn.

The Armenian international is out of contract at Dortmund next summer and the German club are ready to listen to offers after player confirmed his desire to not extend his stay at Signal Iduna Park.
Up until last night, Manchester United looked in control over the player’s transfer with a €30million and above offer being tabled, however, seeing player’s sister following Arsenal on LinkedIn, we may need to reconsider player’s next move.
While you may question our basis of covering the story but think again about how Monika works for the UEFA and does not follow a single English team apart from Arsenal.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is seen as one of the best attackers in the modern game and with 23 goals, 32 assists last season, every top club is in the race to sign him this summer.
At this time, it seems that the player is off to Emirates, but we have seen many done deals collapse at the last minute, so we may want to wait until it’s official.
