After forging a lethal partnership at Borussia Dortmund, the attacking pair are once again club colleagues following their respective January deals.

Alexis Sanchez and the Armenian maestro swapped places, while the Gunners also forked out a reported £56 million for the prolific Gabonese striker.

Naturally, the Emirate faithfuls are drooling at the prospect of Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan combining with their telepathic ways.

But before signing on the all-important dotted lines, Aubameyang has detailed his conversations with Mkhitaryan ahead of sealing a transfer.

"I'm really happy [to be at the same club as Micki again]," Aubameyang told Arsenal.

He's not only a good friend but also like a brother.

"He's really like a brother, a good friend, and we've played together in the past. I'm really happy to see him again.

Before revealing what was said between them.

"He called me a few times and he asked me, 'Will you come or not?' and I said, 'First you have to tell me if you sign or not!' Then he told me it was all done, and of course it was a big factor in coming here.

"I think we understand each other on and off the pitch. I think that's why it's a little bit easier on the pitch," Aubameyang added.

Will Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan feature or even start on Saturday against Everton? Watch this space.
