Paul Merson: Henrikh Mkhitaryan is one of the best players in Premier League

Paul Merson has labelled Henrikh Mkhitaryan "one of the best players in the Premier League" and urged Arsenal to sign him if Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil leave the club.

And Merse believes such a deal is Arsenal's only way of saving face at the end of a transfer saga which could see them lose their two best players for nothing this summer.

"I think selling Sanchez to United and getting Mkhitaryan in return would work," he told Soccer Saturday.

"I honestly believe Mkhitaryan is one of the best players in the Premier League, his confidence is just shot at United.

"If Arsenal could get him playing like he was at Borussia Dortmund they would have one of the best players in the league. That would represent a good deal."
