The Armenia international has been settling into life at The Emirates after having signed for the Gunners from Manchester United in the January transfer window.
The 29-year-old moved to the north London club as part of the same deal which saw Alexis Sanchez leave the Gunners to head to Old Trafford.
He has been in decent form for the Gunners since his switch, scoring one goal and making four assists for Arsene Wenger’s men in the Premier League so far.
Now, the player himself has lifted the lid on his decision to leave Old Trafford and says it was made easy because of the chance to leave Manchester United and play for an attacking team.
Speaking to FourFourTwo, Mkhitaryan said: “When I heard I could swap Man United for Arsenal, I said, ‘Yes, I want to do that’, I didn’t think twice.
“It’s important for me to play in an offensive team. I couldn’t have imagined a better start [providing three assists in his home debut against Everton].
“I’d missed playing offensively. I joined Arsenal because Wenger wanted me, not because he wanted to replace Sanchez.
“We are different players and characters, with different abilities and skills, so I’ll try my best to do everything for the club.”
Mkhitaryan will be hoping to feature for Arsenal when the Gunners return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a home clash against Southampton at The Emirates.
The north London side are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table and look set to miss out on a top four finish for the second season running.
