Mkhitaryan - Why I admire 'assist king' Ozil

The chance to see Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil in the same team is an enticing prospect - and our newest signing is just as excited about it as everyone else.

Armenia international Mkhitaryan may be cup-tied for our Carabao Cup clash with Chelsea on Wednesday, but he is looking forward to showing what he can do soon.

"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."
