Henrikh Mhkitaryan can save Arsenal £9.36m and ensure Justin Kluivert vision is fulfilled

Published

According to Corriere dello Sport, via Team Talk, the Gunners could move for the son of former Barcelona and Newcastle United striker, Patrick, and are said to be eyeing up a potential swap deal.

This scenario would see Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has spent this season on loan in the Italian capital and has rediscovered some of his previous form, join the Serie A outfit permanently with Kluivert moving in the opposite direction.

Furthermore, the Italian publication is reporting the Gunners could pay £13m on top to get this deal done.

And judging by Kluivert’s comments prior to leaving Ajax for Roma in the summer of 2018, he would jump at the chance to play for the Gunners – as well as several other top European clubs.

“If you get a nice offer, you never know,” Kluivert said when asked about a move away from Ajax a couple of years ago.

“England appeals to me: Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea or Manchester United are nice clubs where I can see myself playing in a few years.

“Everywhere I go abroad they know my father and he often asked: ‘Come to Barcelona, I’ll give a tour of Camp Nou’.

“I really wanted to go to Barcelona instead of Real Madrid.

“Barcelona is in my heart, but who am I to say no to Real Madrid?”

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
