Henrikh Mkhitaryan ( born 21 January 1989) is an Armenian professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Arsenal and captains the Armenian national team.
Mkhitaryan plays mainly as an attacking midfielder, but can also be deployed as a wide midfielder. Born in Yerevan, Mkhitaryan began his senior career at local club Pyunik at age 17, and was instrumental in the side's success in domestic competition, winning four successive Armenian Premier League titles and an Armenian Cup. His success caught the attention of Ukrainian side Metalurh Donetsk, where he remained for a singular season before transferring to perennial Ukrainian Premier Leaguechampions and city rivals Shakhtar Donetsk in 2010, for a fee of €6.1 million.
During his time at Shakhtar, Mkhitaryan became renowned for his goalscoring prowess and footballing intelligence, and gained comparisons to Zinedine Zidane.Mkhitaryan would register a goal involvement every 0.75 games at Shakhtar, including a league record goal scoring total of 25 in 2012–13, while also being named Ukrainian Premier League Footballer of the Year. After achieving a domestic double in three of his four seasons in Shakhtar, his exploits in Ukraine eventually attracted Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, who signed the player after protracted negotiations for a club-record fee of €27.5 million, making him the most expensive Armenian player of all time.
In Germany, Mkhitaryan established himself as one of the best midfielders in Europe, with his creative and goalscoring abilities firing Dortmund to a DFL-Supercup in 2014. During the following campaign, he registered the most number of assists in the Bundesliga, with 15, which ranked him second for the most in Europe. However, after again featuring as a runner-up in the Bundesliga, Mkhitaryan relocated to England to join Manchester United in a deal worth £30 million (€34.3 million), becoming the first Armenian to play in the Premier League. Mkhitaryan's debut season saw him win the FA Community Shield, while also scoring the winner as United attained their first UEFA Europa League title. Mkhitaryan stayed a season and a half in Manchester, before lukewarm form and disillusionment with the club's footballing philosophy led him to sign for rivals Arsenal in a deal in 2018.
