only want £10million for to help raise funds this summer.

The 31-year-old Armenian has spent the season out on at and will have just one year left to run on his existing deal.

Roma are keen to sign Mkhitaryan on a permanent transfer and have even discussed the potential of a player-plus-cash deal.

However, it seems Arsenal have dropped their asking price to just £10million in hope of raising transfer funds for Mikel Arteta to spend on new recruits.

Although Arteta and the board see Mkhitaryan as a ‘good player and character’ and would welcome him back into the fold next season, its understood that they would also be willing to move him on for the right price this summer.

Mkhitaryan has previously expressed his desire to stay at Roma after enjoying life at the this season but the side believe Arsenal’s valuation of the player is still too high for them to push forward with a move.
