The London giants could reportedly snap up exciting Roma teenager Justin Kluivert in exchange for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Super agent Mino Raiola who represents both footballers, is mooting a possible swap deal that could see Justin Kluivert join Arsenal while Mkhitaryan joins Giallorossi on a permanent deal.
Henrikh has been on a season-long loan at the Serie A giants Roma from Gunners and according to recent reports, Armenia international wants to make the move permanent. Mikel Arteta wants to bolster the front-line during the summer transfer window.
Gunners would be able to sign the teenager Kluivert in a cash plus player exchange deal that would entail Arsenal to pay Roma £11-13m plus Mkhitaryan in exchange for the 21-year-old striker.
Justin Kluivert who is the son of Dutch legend Patrick Kluivert has scored 7 goals in 27 games for Roma and would be a great coup for Gunners and would slot right into Arsenal’ starting eleven with continuing speculation surrounding the future of Gabonese centre-forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Aubameyang is heading towards the final year of his Gunners contract, so the north London giants would do well to bolster their front-line on the cheap if possible, as this reported swap deal would allow.
