YEREVAN (Armenianow) — Borussia Dortmund’s Armenia international Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been named the player of the Bundesliga 2015-16, according to a poll conducted by German magazine Kicker.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder topped the list with over 31 percent of the votes, followed by Bayern Munich’s Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who has about 22 percent of the votes.

Bayern’s Thomas Muller and Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came third and fourth with 13.6 and 13.2 percent, respectively.

Scoring 23 goals and creating a further 32 in 51 appearances for Dortmund in the 2015-16 season, Mkhitaryan earlier made it into the Bundesliga and Europa League dream teams decided by media. With five goals scored in the Germany Cup, Mkhitaryan has also been recognized as the tournament’s best scorer.

Mkhitaryan is likely to stay in Dortmund for 2016-17 despite media speculations linking him with possible Arsenal or Chelsea moves.

The Bild wrote earlier this week that Borussia’s management had made a “shock decision” to keep Mkhitaryan for one more season and allow him to leave for free next year. The decision, the paper suggested, was due to the apparent unpreparedness of the Bundseliga’s 2015-16 runners-up to lose another player after Mats Hummels’ transfer to rivals Bayern Munich and Ilkay Gundogan’s likely move to Manchester City.
