Liverpool, Arsenal Told to Act Fast to Snatch Mkhitaryan from Juventus

Armenian soccer star Henrikh Mkhitaryan

DORTMUND, Germany—Liverpool and Arsenal will have to act fast if they want to beat Juventus to buy Henrikh Mkhitaryan, according to the player’s agent, the Daily Express reports.

Reports in Italy suggest the Armenian footballer could be on his way to Juventus this month, despite previously being linked with Arsenal and Liverpool.

However, Mino Raiola, who represents Mkhitaryan, believes Dortmund may not want to let the player go despite his struggles this season.

Raiola told Radio Anch’io Sport: “He’s an extraordinary footballer, on both a technical and professional level. He can create assists and goals, he’s useful to a team.

“He’s suitable for Juve, he can be part of one of the top 10 teams in the world.

“However, it’s difficult to see Borussia Dortmund letting him go, but he could bring something extra to the Italian League. We’ll see if he can get to Serie A.”

Henrikh Mkhitaryan plays for German soccer club Borussia Dortmund in addition to Armenia’s National Team.
