Pacquiao, 38, was under pressure from fans to face two-time light-welterweight champion Khan after the Bolton fighter topped an online poll to choose his next opponent.

Khan's team, which has been boosted by the return of Asif Vali, spoke to Arum last month when they were in Las Vegas for Carl Frampton's defeat to Leo Santa Cruz.

Khan's initial plan was to have a tune-up fight following hand surgery in the wake of his brutal KO by Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, but he would jump at the chance to fight Pacquiao, who was his training partner at Freddie Roach's Wildcard gym in Los Angeles.
