Arsenal fans appear split on the latest reports the club could be about to swap Alexis Sanchez for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Sanchez had appeared Manchester City bound, but United boss Jose Mourinho has planned an audacious move to hijack the Gunners star.

Sky Sports football correspondant Kaveh Solhekol earlier tweeted: “Sky in Italy: Manchester United want to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal & ready to include Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of deal”.

As for Mkhitaryan, the winger has struggled to figure into Mourinho’s plans this term. He’s started just half of the Red Devils’ 22 league games, scoring only once.

It hasn’t quite worked out for the Amenia international in the Premier League, but the scintillating form he showed in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund earned him Player of the Year in 2015/16.

Despite this, many Arsenal fans are focusing on his current performances. And it’s fair to say they are not keen on the 29 year-old arriving at the Emirates.
