Mkhitaryan has in large part been overpassed by Jose Mourinho this season.
A go back to Borussia Dortmund has been mooted for the Armenian world after failing to turn out his value at Old Trafford.
United, Express Sport understands, introduced an bold £25million bid for Alexis Sanchez, who has been extensively tipped to sign up for Manchester City.
Mkhitaryan, it’s understood, used to be regarded as as a possible makeweight within the deal.
And Sherwood thinks Mkhitaryan can be a excellent have compatibility on the Emirates if a deal may well be struck.
“It is difficult to judge him on what we have seen from him at Manchester United,” Sherwood informed Sky Sports’ Debate.
“Looking at what he did at Shakhtar Donetsk and Dortmund, we’re taking a look at a world-class participant.
“He’s missing self assurance.
“Given that injection of self assurance, possibly if Arsene Wenger places his arm spherical him and builds a workforce round him, I believe he’s that excellent.”
Arsenal have to this point made only one signing this window – Konstantinos Mavropanos from PAS Giannini.
