The striker, who scored on his Gunners debut, a 5-1 drubbing of Everton on Saturday, has explained that the opportunity to reunite with Mkhitaryan is what convinced him to sign for Arsenal.

"He called me a few times and asked, 'Will you come or not?'" the Gabon superstar told Arsenal’s official website.

"I said, 'First you have to tell me if you signed or not'. He told me it was all done – and, of course, it was a big factor in me coming here. It's like being reunited with a brother, a good friend.

"We played together in the past, and I'm really happy to see him again."
