Arsenal hopeful of completing superb double transfer deal despite delay

Posted by

Arsenal are reportedly ‘hopeful’ of signing both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan despite some delay in the latter deal, according to BBC Sport’s David Ornstein.

The trusted transfer news reporter tweeted updates on deals involving Alexis Sanchez heading to Manchester United and Mkhitaryan moving in the opposite direction.

According to Ornstein, the delay is coming from Mkhitaryan’s end as no progress has been made despite reports yesterday from Gianluca Di Marzio of talks between the club and his agent.

It is not clear if Sanchez’s move to Old Trafford hinges on the Armenia playmaker accepting a move to the Emirates Stadium at this time.

Ornstein adds that Arsenal remain ‘hopeful’ of landing Mkhitaryan and his former team-mate Aubameyang, who has been tipped to leave Borussia Dortmund.

Could these two soon be reunited at Arsenal?

The Sun reported earlier today that the Gabon international’s £53million move to north London is edging closer.

Arsenal fans would certainly love to see both players come in, with the new-look attacking duo between them likely to be enough to ensure Sanchez is not too badly missed.
