The Gunners have provided an immediate response to an offer to sell one of the attackers who were signed by the club two years ago, during the winter transfer window of 2018.
Before Arsene Wenger said goodbye to the club, the Frenchman managed to secure a couple of high-profile deals to make up for the loss of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan was one of the players who moved to the Emirates stadium during the January transfer window two years ago, but his poor form last season has seen him spend this term on loan at AS Roma.
Nonetheless, according to Italian source Forza Roma, the Gunners have received an offer of €10 million from Roma to sign the Armenian star.
The report states that Arsenal have immediately responded to the Italian club’s interest by rejecting their bid for Mkhitaryan.
Roma’s offer can be deemed too low for a player with the ex-Dortmund star’s ability and – regardless of his form in England – Arsenal may be justified to demand more money for Mkhitaryan.
The 30-year-old, who is an earner of £180,000-a-week wages (Mirror), has certainly produced improved performances during his loan spell in Italy this season.
