Arsenal’s record-signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has revealed to reporters that Henrikh Mkhitaryan played huge part in his move to the Emirates Stadium.
According to the Gabonese striker, Mkhitaryan who was his teammate during his time at Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund, called him to ask if he would be joining the North London club.
“He called me a few times, he asked ‘will you come or not?’ I said ‘first you have to tell me if you sign or not’, Auba said.
The two players created an understanding between themselves while playing at the Westfalenstadion, and that was shown against Everton on Saturday when the Armenian assisted Aubameyang’s first goal for the club.
Bar any injury or illness, both players are certain to be in Wenger’s starting lineup when the Gunners battle Tottenham at the Wembley stadium on Saturday.
