Raiola pushes Arsenal as Roma reject straight swap for Mkhitaryan & Kluivert

Roma want Arsenal to lower their asking price for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The clubs are negotiating a swap deal which would involved Justin Kluivert heading to North London.

According to Calciomercato, the Serie A club has rejected a straight swap deal for the pair, believing Dutch winger Kluivert to be worth more than Mkhitaryan.

Super agent Mino Raiola working hard to broker the deal and believes the Gunners would only need to bump up their offer by two million euros.

Former Manchester United midfielder Mkhitaryan has spent the season on loan at the Stadio Olimpico, impressing in 17 appearances.

Roma boss Paulo Fonseca is reluctant to let Kluivert leave, but could be persuaded due to his desire to retain Mkhitaryan.
