Unai Emery speaks out on Henrikh Mkhitaryans Europa League problem with Arsenal
Because of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, Armenians are banned from Azerbaijan.
As well as Arsenals group stage match which is scheduled for October 4, Mkhitaryan could also miss the Europa League final as it will be held in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.
Mkhitaryan would need to acquire a visa from the Azerbaijani government in order to travel to the country and Emery is keen for the midfielder to be available.
I would like that he can [travel] with us, said the Arsenal manager.
And this problem, if we can together arrange [a solution], its better.
But I have not yet spoken with him.
A statement from Arsenal read: Safety and security of all our players and staff is always a top priority.
We will be looking into this situation, talk to the player and make a decision after that.
