I spoke to Aubameyang about Arsenal move – Mkhitaryan
Former Manchester United forward, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has confessed that he spoke with his former teammate, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang about linking up at the Emirates after admitting that the striker is one of his favourite players.
The Armenian joined the Gunners in a swap deal from United that saw Alexis Sanchez going in the other direction and Aubameyang completed his record move to Arsenal a few days later to join his former Dortmund pal in North London.
The duo was best of friends during their time together in Germany with Borussia Dortmund and the Gabonese also recently confirmed that he spoke with Mhki before deciding to join Arsenal.
However, Mkhitaryan has admitted in a recent revelation while speaking with Arsenal Player that he knows about the move. He said: “I won’t mention all the details because it’s not fair.”
“But yes, when I signed for Arsenal I’ve been in touch with him saying, ‘So the first step is done, now we’re waiting for the second one’.”
The two offensive players have played together twice since joining the Gunners as they were instrumental in the 5-1 thrashing of Everton at the Emirates a few days ago although they equally suffered a 1-0 defeat on Saturday at the North London derby.
Mkhitaryan has revealed that he is glad to have the opportunity to play with the former African footballer of the year again after their exciting partnership in Dortmund.
He continued: “I thought it could only be in a dream that we would join another club other than Dortmund but I am very happy for that. I know him very well, he is one of my best friends and one of the best team-mates I have ever had.”
“I am very happy to have him here and I think all the fans are happy to see him in an Arsenal shirt. What can I say? I love playing with him.” He concluded
