The gunners were more than satisfied with the swap deal because Sanchez had made it clear that he wanted to leave the North Londoners and what has been more important is that Mkhitaryan has proved to be an outstanding signing who can assist and even score goals.
Mkhitaryan has revealed what his target is with the Arsenal team and the Armenian international says that he wants to be a legend in North London;
“I want to write my name in the Arsenal history and have my name as a legend here.’ said the Armenian.
‘ I want to score goals, make assists and win trophies to make the fans happy.”
The Arsenal fans will be excited with the commitment and the desire to win trophies for the club which Mkhitaryan has because it proves that he is now a passionate gunner who loves the team as well as caring for the team.
Mkhitaryan will certainly be in action today when the gunners welcome Russian club CSKA Moscow at the Emirates Stadium to play the first leg of the Europa League quarter finals which have begun today with Arsenal starting at home. Mkhitaryan was voted Arsenal player of the month for March thanks to his out standing performances in that month.
