Juventus are looking to hijack Arsenal’s deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, according to reports, according to Daily Express.
Mkhitaryan has been in fine form for Borussia Dortmund this term and is closing in on Kevin De Bruyne’s Bundesliga assist record of 21.
The Armenia international needs to set up just two more goal’s to surpass the Manchester City star and has also weighed in with an impressive 18 goals.
Mkhitaryan reportedly attracted the attention of the Gunners who are said to be close to a deal for the 27-year-old.
The Sun claimed last month the winger had already begun house hunting in London ahead of a summer move to the Premier league.
However, reports in Italy now suggest Juventus are planning to hijack Arsenal’s deal after failing in their attempts to sign Isco and Oscar.
Website transfermarketweb claim Juve chiefs are hoping to fast-track a deal and are willing to pay in the region of £24million.
Mkhitaryan’s current contract with Dortmund expires in June next year
