Henrikh Mkhitaryan has confirmed that both he and fellow January Arsenal signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang colluded over their respective moves to the Emirates.

The former Borussia Dortmund teammates both signed for the Gunners, with Mkhitaryan exchanged for Alexis Sanchez in a straight trade with Manchester United and Aubameyang arriving for a club-record £54 million.

Aubameyang recently revealed that he had spoken to Mkhitaryan prior to deciding to join Arsenal, and now the Armenian has backed up that their decision to move to north London was a joint one.
