Emery questions decision to host Europa League final in Baku


It's important if you take the title here and you go to the Champions League.

This means that the Premier League could soon witness a well-fought transfer race for the defensive midfielder, who is now valued at £35million.

"I completely understand because he's someone very ambitious and he knows and wants to know where we're going and where he's going". However, with a few key players doubtful on their future, the Spurs may consider him as a replacement.

"It means a lot to reach another European final - and I will continue to try to do my best to help the team".

Earlier this week, Arsenal expressed their concern over the safety of Henrikh Mkhitaryan ahead of the trip to Baku, in light of political tensions between Azerbaijan and the midfielder's native Armenia. "I think it's going to be full but not with our supporters and Chelsea supporters".
