Arsenal manager Wenger praises Mkhitaryan commitment: Brilliant with extra training

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

"He called me a few times, he asked, "Will you come or not?' I said, 'First you have to tell me if you sign or not".

Aubameyang became Arsenal's record signing when he joined in a £56 million deal from Borussia Dortmund last week and it hasn't taken long for the Gabon worldwide to draw comparisons to the Gunners' all-time record scorer. I had it with Francis Jeffers, who I played with for England youth sides and then Charlton.

Merson thinks it's akin to the Robin van Persie transfer Manchester United forced through - and Wenger only has one thing in mind when it comes to the player and what he can bring to the club.

Pulisic is part of the Dortmund squad that was warned by CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke not to follow Aubameyang's example in "withholding" performances in order to force a move.

Arsenal fans will be delighted to hear that new signing Mkhitaryan is already making a huge impression on the training ground after it emerged that the Armenian has been staying behind after every session to help strengthen partnerships with the likes of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. I can understand him from step one and hopefully for the next games we are going to achieve more. But yesterday he had a good session.

The Gabon worldwide has taken the number 14 shirt, which was previously worn by Henry who is the club's all-time leading goalscorer. "What you want is for everyone to be focused to win the game", Wenger said on Thursday, Goal report. His finishing is good.

"These guys are top quality players". In fact, in four meetings against Spurs, Aubameyang has only failed to score once - in Dortmund's 3-1 defeat at Wembley in September - scoring four goals in as many appearances against them over the past couple of seasons.

"We won the Europa League final, I scored a goal". "When we played at Swansea [a 3-1 defeat], we played against 10 men in the last 25 yards and that doesn't exist anywhere in Europe".
