Chelsea revive interest in international captain following £46m transfer snub

According to reports from BILD, Chelsea have revived their interest in Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Armenia skipper has just come to the end of a phenomenal campaign at Westfalenstadion, bagging 23 goals and 32 assists in 51 appearances across all competitions – including eleven goals in the German top flight.

According to the German publication, the Blues launched a £46million bid for the attacking midfielder last summer but saw it rejected by the Black-Yellows.

However, the west London club are now reviving their interest in the 27-year-old as they begin to make plans for the summer transfer window.

And it’s possible that Chelsea will be able to sign Mkhitaryan for a considerably lower fee this time around, with his Dortmund contract set to expire at the end of next season and no sign of an extended deal.

Famed for his scintillating speed and netting prowess, Mkhitaryan can operate as a wideman or a No.10.
