Mkhitaryan Is Happy That Aubameyang And Sokratis Are At Arsenal

Emery was also asked about Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis for a second day in a row, amid reports that he could be close to leaving for AC Milan.

"When I arrived here, the first meeting was with Ivan". He has lots of experience in the football world.

"I don't know, maybe something was wrong or something was not the way I wanted, but it's life and it keeps going and I was looking forward to a new chapter".

"I've had a few conversations with him about the way we want to play".
