According to reports in Italy, three Premier League clubs are vying with Juventus for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Italian site gianlucadimarzio.com claims that Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs are all jostling for position to sign the Borussia Dortmund star.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder is tied to the German club until next summer but he is reported to be considering not renewing his deal.

That may force the German club's hand to get him on the market now to recoup some cash.

Juventus are reported to have made a salary offer of €4m a year but this latest report claims that Arsenal have bettered that while United and Spurs may also be prepared to pay more than the Italian club to secure his services.

The Aremenian is a classy player who has long been linked with a whole host of European clubs and he had a brilliant 2015-16 season, topping the charts in Germany for assists and winning the Bundesliga Players' Player of the Year gong.
