Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s agent, Mino Raiola, has been handed a worldwide transfer ban for three months meaning that if the club were planning to shift the player on, they might run into a few problems.

Mino Raiola, probably the most powerful agent in the game, will not be able to deal with any transfers until 9 August. The transfer window closes for England on 9 August.

That being said, I’m sure Raiola will be able to find a way around the ban enough to make a mockery of it.

Despite being linked with a move away, it seems like the Armenian’s future lies with Arsenal regardless of Raiola’s ban.

It was recently reported that Borussia Dortmund tried to lure him back to Germany but Tuttomercatoweb claim his future lies in north London.
