Playmaker wanted by Arsenal & Bayern Munich talks up move to Euro giants

Borussia Dortmund playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has admitted that he wouldn’t rule out a move to Juventus, despite being linked to Arsenal.

According to Fichajes [via Sport Bild], Arsene Wenger is a big fan of the attacking midfielder, and is understood to be considering a move to bring him to the Emirates Stadium this summer.

While the Gunners currently have a number of talented attacking midfielders, they could arguably still do with an upgrade in this department.

Tomas Rosicky looks set to leave the club this summer, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere remain regular injury concerns, while Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin are yet to truly deliver on the promise of their early careers.

Bayern Munich are also keen on the Armenia international, who is under contract at BVB until 2017.

However, both heavyweights could be set for disappointment after Mkhitaryan admitted—via Gazzetta dello Sport [as per Goal], that he wouldn’t close the door to a switch to Juventus—another side understood to be keen on his signature.
