Arsenal fans have been reportedly denied visas to enter Azerbaijan ahead of the Europa League final in Baku against Chelsea.

The Gunners have held talks with the Foreign Office after the club's British-Armenian season ticket holders have been told they won't be allowed in the country, reports The Times.

Arsenal want the Azerbaijan government to make an exception so loyal fans can watch the clash against Chelsea on May 29.

The Armenian international is set to be granted a visa on sporting grounds to take part but is deciding whether to participate with fears over his safety.
