Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has shared what he and Henrikh Mkhitaryan told each other before joining Arsenal.
Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan both moved to Arsenal in the January transfer window, with the club reshaping their attack after Alexis Sanchez’s departure for Manchester United.
The pair previously played together for three years at Borussia Dortmund before Mkhitaryan left to join United.
They are now “reunited”, according to Aubameyang.
“He called me a few times and asked, ‘Will you come or not?’” he told the club’s official website.
“I said, ‘First you have to tell me if you signed or not’.
“He told me it was all done — and of course it was a big factor in me coming here. It’s like being reunited with a brother, a good friend. We played together in the past and I’m really happy to see him again.”
