Henrikh Mkhitayan believes it “will be really fun” to play alongside Mesut Ozil at Arsenal.
Mkhitaryan joined Arsenal in a player-exchange deal earlier this week, with Alexis Sanchez headed the other way to Manchester United.
Arsene Wenger sees the Armenian playing in one of two positions for the Gunners, but Mkhitaryan is most looking forward to featuring next to Ozil.
“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,” he told Arsenal Player.
“I think it will be really fun to play alongside Ozil. 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.”
