Wenger reveals plans for Mkhitaryan-Ozil tandem at Arsenal

Date published: Monday 22nd January 2018 12:37

Arsene Wenger has insisted that he is not worried about trying to play new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil in the same Arsenal team.

The Armenian playmaker is expected to complete his switch to The Emirates imminently, with the 29-year-old having already completed his medical and agreed personal terms with the Gunners.

Although Arsenal already have a wealth of attacking midfield talent, Wenger is not concerned by having too many players that can play in the role off the main striker.

He said: “Just play the good players! They can always play together.

‘[Against Crystal Palace] what have you on the pitch? They’re all attacking players. [Alex] Iwobi, Ozil, [Jack] Wilshere, [Alexandre] Lacazette, [Granit] Xhaka. They’re all offensive players, basically.”

Wenger is also hoping to pull off a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as reported in Metro.

Mkhitaryan may not be the only January arrival at the Emirates, with Wenger also working on a deal to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, which would then give the Gunners chief a striking conundrum.

When asked if the pair could play together, the Frenchan added: “We are not as far as that to think about that problem!”.
