Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been tipped to excel at Arsenal by club legend Martin Keown.
Keown told the Daily Mail: He will be a better player at Arsenal than he has been at Manchester United.
Mkhitaryan needs to be nurtured and cared for.
“When I watched United recently, there were two players who were clearly not thriving: Luke Shaw, and Mkhitaryan.
“You could see in Mkhitaryan’s body language that there was a fear in his play. Every time he got something wrong you could see Jose Mourinho bristling on the sidelines.
“If Mourinho does not think that his players are unaware of what he is doing on the touchline then he should not be in management.
“Do not forget that Mkhitaryan had the most assists in the Bundesliga the season before he went to Old Trafford. Arsene Wenger has a great affinity with the German league and I am sure a personal discussion with Wenger will have swung it for Mkhitaryan to join Arsenal.
“The big question is where Arsenal play him. He could play off the left, off the front or in a more central role.”
