Mkhitaryan was signed from Manchester United as a part of the Alexis Sanchez deal, and the Armenian was asked on his first interview that the player he is mostly waiting to play with. He replied that he wants to play with everybody and wants to build a good harmony in the team.

But he spoke to Arsenal’s official website today yet again and has revealed the current Gunner he admires the most.

According to the 29 year old, he admires Mesut Ozil the most at the Arsenal squad and believes that it will be a great joy to play alongside with him.

“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,” he said.

And he also clarified why he admires the German wizard, stating that he likes the way Ozil understands the game. Also Mkhitaryan is a huge fan of Ozil’s intelligence and the way the former Real Madrid man gives pace to a match. The Armenian added that Mesut’s final decision is one thing to admire as well and he is excited to play alongside him.
“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’s official media channel.
Mkhitaryan won’t feature for the Gunners in their Carabao Cup matches as he is cup tied after playing for the Red Devils before his move. There is also another chance that his stay with Ozil can be short lived if the German decides to leave the Emirates at the end of the season.
