Manchester United fans convinced star is set for Arsenal transfer after surprise absence vs Stoke City

Posted by

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has not included Henrikh Mkhitaryan in his squad to face Stoke City tonight, fuelling speculation he could be set for a transfer to Arsenal.

The Armenia international hasn’t been a regular for the Red Devils for much of this season, but has previously shown he could be a quality signing for a top club.

Arsenal could do with a player like Mkhitaryan if they lose contract rebels Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, both of whom are due to be free agents at the end of the season.

Reports from the Metro today suggested Mkhitaryan wasn’t interested in a move to Arsenal, but his surprise absence from Mourinho’s squad today surely suggests something is amiss.

Arsene Wenger would surely offer the former Borussia Dortmund man the playing time he wants, so a switch to the Emirates Stadium would make a lot of sense for him personally, even if the club aren’t in the strongest state at the moment.

This latest development has certainly raised one or two eyebrows anyway…
