Granit Xhaka has supported Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan to be a success at Arsenal if he joins in exchange for Alexis Sanchez.
“I read that in 2009 he said that he likes Arsenal.
“I’m sure the style of play here would suit him. Every player has their own qualities. He is a great footballer, so let’s just see what happens.
“It was tough to play against him. To be honest, I would rather have played alongside him. He is a player who is obviously very good and has lots of good qualities as well.”
“We played many times against him when he was at Dortmund,” Wenger said.
“He certainly appreciated the quality of our game and the way we play football. That’s why certainly he loves the club as well.”
Xhaka also praised the attitude shown by Sanchez, saying: “We all see that he always gives everything on the pitch.
“He wants to win all the time and obviously last season he scored well over 20 goals and this season he is scoring goals as well.
