Henrikh Mkhitaryan has revealed that he can’t wait to play with Mesut Ozil at Arsenal after finalising his transfer from Manchester United (via Arsenal.com).
After several years of being linked with a move to the club, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is finally an Arsenal player.
The Armenian midfielder signed from Manchester United on Monday this week and now, he has revealed which Gunners player he is most excited to play alongside.
“I think it will be really fun to play alongside Ozil,” he told Arsenal.com. “Everyone knows he’s a fantastic player, he’s an assist king! I look forward to it.
“[I admire] his intelligence, the way that he can understand the game, reads the game, plus the way he gives pace to the game and, of course, his final decision.

“Here at Arsenal I know that lots of players move a lot and it’s incredible the way [the team] plays. I will do my best to assist them as well.”
Let’s hope Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil can strike up a good relationship on the field. They are the two most creative players at the club and if they’re both playing well, there will be a lot of chances created.
