Arsenal are interested in a move for Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan but he would cost £30.9million and £3.8million in wages according to Gazzetta World. 

Arsenal are expected to be heavily busy in this summer transfer window after a disappointing campaign this past season.

They have already moved to make their first signing of the summer, securing midfielder Granit Xhaka in a £30million move from Borussia Monchengladbach.

And he may not be the only star to arrive from Germany, with them also interested in Mkhitaryan.

The Gunners have long been linked with the Dortmund star, and should they be interested in his services, would have to pay £30.9million and £3.8million in wages according to Gazzetta World.

That would be a pricey purchase for the Gunners, although the impending arrival of Xhaka indicates they are willing to spend big this year.

The Armenian would be a star signing though, having impressed again for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season.

Thomas Tuchel’s side would be loathe to lose their man, but given he is in the last year of his contract, they would surely sanction a sale should he indicate he won’t agree a new deal.
