Wenger: 'I Tried Signing Mkhitaryan In 2016'

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he tried to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan two years ago before he joined Manchester United.
"Yeah, I met him at the time," Wenger said.

"At the time we were close, but in in the end it didn't work."
Mkhitaryan joined United instead in July 2016, in a deal reportedly worth around £30 million (N14bn).

But the attacking midfielder has had an underwhelming spell at Old Trafford and Jose Mourinho has only started him in one English Premier League game since Nov. 5.

Wenger acknowledged that the rough spell may have affected Mkhitaryan's confidence, but that he has no doubts the midfielder will seize the opportunity at Arsenal.
