Neville believes a change of scenery will be beneficial to a talented playmaker – especially as part of a team that will embrace his skill set – while he also claims that Arsenal could end up “a better team” for their winter deals, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang another mooted target.
The former United star told BBC Radio 5 Live: “I can see Henrikh going to Arsenal and being a fantastic signing for them.
“If Arsenal sign Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang, Arsenal may become a better team, because they will have two really good players.
“We didn’t see the best of Mkhitaryan at United. I’m a massive fan of him.
