Seems like Arsenal aren't alone in wanting the Dortmund star.

One of this spring's hottest transfer stories has been who will secure the services of Dortmund's Henrik Mkhitaryan this summer. Teams have coveted him for a while, and now, unsurprisingly, Arsenal has reportedly joined that race.

Mkhitaryan seems to want to move to London, which would seem to mean that his choice would be between Arsenal and Chelsea because he's never going to sign for West Ham now is he. As of right now, only one of those teams can offer Champions League football, so that would seem to give Arsenal an edge - as long as that remains true. But Chelsea have a lot more resources they can throw at Mkhitaryan, so....who knows.

Either way, this summer promises to be full of wacky fun like this, so stay tuned - we all know how this song has gone in years past, and all we can do now is hope that the song is different this year.
