Arsenal could land Legend’s son in Mino Raiola swap deal

Arsenal are being linked with a swap deal with Roma, which could see Patrick Kluivert’s son Justin arrive at the Emirates with Henrikh Mkhitaryan as makeweight.

The Giallorossi are keen to keep the Armenian beyond his current loan deal, which is set to expire this summer, but have so far been unable to broker a deal.

Arsenal are reported to be in want of £10 Million for Mkhi, who will be entering the final 12 months of his current deal inside the coming month, but our Italian counterparts are thought to be trying to lower our demands.

Mino Raiola is keen to help his client get his wish to stay in the Italian capital, and is now believed to be working on a deal that will please all parties, by orchestrating a swap deal which would see Arsenal pay for the signature of target Justin Kluivert, using Mkhi as a makeweight in the deal.

The Armenian is believed to be willing to take a wage cut in order to secure his end of the deal, and who wouldn’t want one of the most exciting youngsters in Europe?

Justin Kluivert has an exceptional set of skills, highlighted by his composure in front of goal and an amazing ability to pass defenders like they are not there.

The 21 year-old certainly looks like he could emerge as one of the best players on the continent under the right tutelage, and Mikel Arteta may well be just the man to help him reach the next level.

Would Arsenal agree to pay between £11-13 Million plus Mkhi for his signature? Will Arteta be worried about having too many players vying for the winger roles in the side?

    Yes please it would be a great deal. Only thing in Saka, Martinelli, Nelson is the LW already to stacked? How do we fit them all in? Could Nelson/Kluivert/Pepe be groomed as a CAM?

    The kid reminds me of Walcott a bit. Pace and great finishing but without much intelligence on the ball. Poor decision-making would be laid bare in the prem. Get rid of Mhki for free. Freeing his wages would be the equivalent of £10m+ per year which could go towards recruitment.

      Sean, God forbid he should resemble lazy Walcott in ANY football related way. I do not agree that Walcott was ever a great finisher(way overhyped description)) though his finishing went from poor to moderate by the end. But his only GREAT finish for us was when his time here finished. THAT WAS GREAT! Idle and useless Mkhi is not on anywhere near £10 mill annually, which equates to £200000pw. No way!

        He was on £210k at utd so I assumed it was more or less the same. Turns out he costs us £7.5m p/y. Not 10m, you’re right, but as the great philosopher Tesco said, every little helps.

    Kluivet is very wasteful. His final deliveries are very. Have you ever watched this guy, or you think that he’ll be like his father? Mkhitaryan is far much better than this guy
