Arsenal are now on the brink of securing the signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United according to various reports this weekend.

Alexis Sanchez has been linked with a move away from the club for the past several months after coming close to a Manchester City switch during the summer.

The 29-year-old is finally set to be granted his wish of saying goodbye to the Gunners and Manchester United will be his destination.

The departure of Sanchez will see Arsenal receive Henrikh Mkhitaryan in return, just over a year after the winger’s move to England from the Bundesliga.

Reports from BBC have indicated that Mkhitaryan is scheduled to undergo a medical within the next 48 hours and Premier League betting will most likely mark him down as favourite to start on the left flank ahead of Alex Iwobi who is filling that gap at the moment.

And with the transfer of the Armenian star now edging closer to completion, it is time to prepare some welcome messages.

So here is our best mock-up of Mkhitaryan wearing and holding his new jersey as an Arsenal player…
