Arsenal have signed Henrikh Mkhitaryan in a straight swap deal with Manchester United that has seen Alexis Sanchez join Manchester United. In this article we bring you the first pictures of our new Armenian midfielder in an Arsenal shirt.
In a separate article, I’ve shared my thoughts on the swap, and why I think it can be a good deal for Arsenal.
He’s a playmaker that can play anywhere across the attack and he’s got a phenomenal final ball. In his last season at Dortmund (2015/2016), Mkhitaryan notched 11 goals and 15 assists in 31 Bundesliga games. His goal contribution rate was the highest of any player in Europe’s top 5 leagues.
Mkhitaryan says he doesn’t have a preferred position and can play anywhere across the attack and midfield, before adding he likes to roam from his position rather than be restricted – something he certainly was not allowed to do so much at United.
