Arsenal reportedly slash asking price for Henrikh Mkhitaryan

The Armenian is looking to join Roma in a permanent deal.

Arsenal have reportedly slashed their asking price for Henrikh Mkhitaryan as they look to move the Armenian on this summer. 

The 31-year-old is currently on loan at AS Roma and the Italian side are being strongly linked with a permanent switch for his services. 

It now appears they will not have to spend big to do so.

It is a significant climbdown from Arsenal, considering his previous apparent price-tag. Corriere dello Sport reported in mid-April that Arsenal wanted €20 million (£17.8 million) to get a deal done. 

 

However, the latest report appears to match up with more with a recent story from the same Italian source which suggested his agent Mino Raiola had managed to negotiate an £8.7 million deal between the two clubs. 

Mkhitaryan clearly wants to move on from Arsenal this summer and with his contract expiring in 12 months the Gunners will want to cash in anyway on a player who arrived at The Emirates Stadium as part of the deal which saw Alexis Sanchez head to Manchester United. 

Whilst less than £10 million might not feel like a good return, in the current climate, it is likely the best that Arsenal can do.
