Arsenal’s new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan believes Mesut Ozil is the best player in his position in the world.

The Armenia international joined Arsenal in a straight swap deal for Alexis Sanchez last month. He has also linked up former Borussia Dortmund teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who also arrived for a club-record £55.4m

However, Mkhitaryan has admitted he was far more excited by the prospect of teaming up with Mesut Ozil who he thinks is the best No 10 in the world.

As reported by the Express, when asked if he was excited of linking up with both Aubameyang and Ozil, the former Manchester United star said: “Yes of course.

“Not only us three but as well the players that are playing next to us.

“They are having a big impact on the team’s success and the playing style of Arsenal and of course we are trying to do the best.

“Everyone knows that Mesut is one of the best players in the world.”

Mkhitaryan made a fast start to his Arseanl career after registering three assists on his home debut. However, he nor Mesut Ozil were able to prevent Arsenal losing in the North London Derby at Wembley last weekend.

The Gunners are now seven points adrift of a Champions League spot.
