The Armenian global will occupy the number vacated by opposite number Alexis Sanchez, who swapped places with Mkhitaryan at Manchester United on Monday, after he completed his own move to the Emirates during domestic encounters. He has also received the Armenian Footballer of the Year award eight times. Join the Pain in the Arsenal team!

Mkhitaryan was substituted at half-time of his first league start for United, setting the tone for what has turned out to be a disappointing spell after arriving in English soccer in 2016 for US$33.5 million and with a big reputation.

Mkhitaryan, 29, moves in the opposite direction to Sanchez after scoring 13 goals in 63 appearances for United.

As an Arsenal fan myself, I can't wait to see Micki play for the club.

"Some foreign based players are going to be invited to camp, but I think the home based stars will form the bulk of the squad".

Arsenal have confirmed the arrival of Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United in exchange for Alexis Sanchez.

All of this invites the question: who is Henrikh Mkhitaryan and why do Arsenal want him? "Players would still prefer to go to them over Pep's side - that's a fact", Ince had told Paddy Power News.

The Chilean is reported to be earning £350,000 a week at Old Trafford, vastly in excess of Arsenal's top-earning players, having entered the last six months of his Gunners contract without penning fresh terms.

However, United's recent acquisition of Alexis Sanchez has seen them up their interest in Vidal, with Jose Mourinho looking to add another Chile global to his squad.

Mkhitaryan made a modest start to his United career and did not start a Premier League game in nearly three months after he was substituted at half-time during his full debut against Manchester City.

Arsenal have announced the completion of that ever-elusive type of transfer deal - a player swap. He creates chances, he defends well, he can absorb distances and he's very committed as well.

Sanchez, 29, is set to become United's best-paid player, with his wages estimated at more than £500,000 ($695,000, 567,000 euros) a week.

"I must say I always gave 100 per cent, until the last day, when I asked to the Mister [Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger] to be in the team, because I wanted to be a contributor". If you're a fan of "Rocky IV", you know the song as the backing for a montage in which Rocky Balboa drives late at night and ruminates about his life, reflecting on how he got to where he is right now.
