Why Mkhitaryan Looks Set To Miss The Europa League Final

But the Celtic boss would not sanction a move without having a replacement lined up.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan could well be unable to play in Arsenal's visit to Qarabag in the Europa League, while he could also miss the final itself if the Gunners get there.

"It has to work for both parties. You never know in the next 24/48 hours, we will see".

"The club has had a significant offer, it's been ongoing for a couple of days and we've taken Moussa out of it", said Rodgers. It was best for him to go inside and let the others work. I'll speak more to him on Friday about where it's at.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas indicated that he will continue his efforts to persuade Celtic to part with Dembele.

He said: 'There is no doubt that looking at them and analysing them, that Steven has done a very good job.

"It is very hard with Celtic, we are going to continue to negotiate all night and tomorrow to bring in a new player".

Celtic should conclude the signings of Congolese midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu and Croatian central defender Filip Benkovic today.

Unai Emery has a history with this competition after three successive titles with Sevilla and is surely out to win it again with Arsenal.

'I became aware of Celtic's interest about two weeks ago.

Benkovic is expected to join on loan from Leicester City.

'I'm just delighted to be here for my first training session and to meet the lads and train with them. It was key to keep the players that we had.

"I'm not sure if Benkovic has been totally confirmed yet".

'It is really about the players on the field and you try to organise your team to play against the opponent.

"I wouldn't have thought there would be anything more", said Rodgers. "We are happy to qualify for the group stage".

"I was pleased with the goals and another clean sheet".

"But for us to get someone of that experience in - of that quality - is great as it will help a lot of our younger players".
