Arsenal legend Paul Merson has supported the deal to bring in Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan to the Emirates.

Mkhitaryan’s deal is also a concluded move after Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger indicated that Alexis Sanchez’s transfer to Manchester United would "likely happen" with Mkhitaryan moving in the opposite direction

Mkhitaryan, who joined United in 2016 from Borussia Dortmund, has struggled for regular game time this season under Jose Mourinho.

Wenger reveals his most painful transfer deal with Man Utd 

"I am a big fan of Mkhitaryan," Merson said on The Debate.

"I watched him at Dortmund, where he was voted player of the season and scored plenty of goals.

"He has lost his way at Manchester United but if Arsenal gets him, with the way they play and the way Arsene Wenger is going forward with attacking players, I think he will be a sensation.

"He is a great signing for Arsenal if they get him," he concluded.

Arsenal will be up against Crystal Palace on Saturday at the Emirate as they look to put the 2-1 defeat against AFC Bournemouth aside and go for the maximum points against the Eagles in the Premier League.
