Arsenal are winning the £20m race to sign Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan after the midfielder reportedly told the Gunners he favours a move to the Emirates over Chelsea, Metro has revealed on Sunday.
The 27-year-old is expected to leave the German giants to move to the English Premier League this summer.
Juventus in Italy are also interested and agent Mino Raiola confirmed at the start of the week that the player is considering his future.
"Why would we sign a contract renewal now?" Raiola told German newspaper Bild.
"Micki has a contract until June 2017 and we are looking at his options for the future."
