BBC: Arsenal face dilemma over Henrikh Mkhitaryan's trip to Baku
2019-05-10 11:41:23

Arsenal face a dilemma over whether to apply for a visa for Henrikh Mkhitaryan after reaching the Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku, according to the BBC. 

Armenia captain Mkhitaryan has missed games in Azerbaijan for Arsenal and former club Dortmund in recent years.

There are no diplomatic relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan because of a longstanding Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The all-English final is scheduled for Wednesday, 29 May.

While playing for Borussia Dortmund in 2015, Mkhitaryan did not travel for a Europa League tie against Azerbaijan Premier League side Gabala because of security concerns.

And he also missed Arsenal's 3-0 Europa League win at FK Qarabag in October, with manager Unai Emery saying "he cannot travel here."
