According to Bild, the Armenia international is closing in on a new extension to his current deal, which is set to end in 2017.
The attacking midfielder shone again this weekend, scoring against Augsburg as Dortmund picked up a 3-1 away win.
He has managed 10 goals and 10 assists so far this term, and as such, it’s little surprise that BVB are keen to tie him down to a new deal, particularly in light of reported interest from Juventus, Bayern Munich and Arsenal.
Fichajes [via Sport Bild] reported last week that Arsene Wenger is a big admirer of the Eastern European, and sees the forward as an upgrade on his currently attacking midfield options, which include the departing Tomas Rosicky, injury concerns Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, and Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, neither of whom have truly delivered on their early promise.
