Super-agent opens door for Arsenal to seal deal for goal-scoring midfielder

The agent of Arsenal target Henrikh Mkhitaryan has admitted Juventus cannot afford to buy the midfielder.

The Italian champions are on the hunt for an attacking midfielder this summer and they switched their attention to Borussia Dortmund playmaker Mkhitaryan, who has previously attracted interest from Arsenal.

However, Arsenal have been given a potential boost in the chase after the 26-year-old’s agent, Mino Raiola, admitted Serie A clubs may struggle to meet his asking price.

As quoted on the TalkSport website, he said: “He could bring something extra to the Serie A, but I don’t know whether Serie A can afford him.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
