ACCORDING to various news reports in Russia and the UK, Liverpool Football Club have agreed a fee with Ukrainian Champions, Shakhtar Donetsk, regarding the transfer of three times Armenian Footballer of the Year, Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Russian news outlet Sports Express has reported that a fee of around £25m (€30m) has been agreed between the two clubs, and that Mkhitaryan will be unveiled as a Liverpool player within the next 72 hours, subject to a medical.
Meanwhile, FutbolTV has also reported that Mkhitaryan is set to become a Red, stating that the player will arrive in Liverpool to complete his medical, possibly on Monday, following the arrival of his agent, Italian, Mino Raiola.
Reports had been circulating in Germany over the last few days that Dortmund were keen on taking Mkhitaryan to the Bundesliga, however the reports in Bild appear to have been a re-hashing of an earlier attempt by the Champions League finalists to prize the highly rated attacking midfielder from Shakhtar, their €23m bid having been rejected some time ago. The leaked story looks to have served its purpose though, by prompting Liverpool to act decisively in hammering out a deal good enough to finally land their target.
With personal terms believed to have been, at the very least, discussed, if not already agreed, there would appear to be little remaining which could scupper the proposed deal at this late stage.
With that in mind, it seems more than likely that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be officially unveiled as a Liverpool player by Wednesday at the very latest.

Bringing Henrihk to anfield is a good decision, to correct the bad impression that started the exit of great midfielders like Alonso and mascherano have created, the secret of best clubs are best of midfielders for eg barca, YNWA.
it will be a good capture,if the deal goes through,and lets hope for a better season this tym ynwa
Mkhitaryan is a good player, a very good player actually. Liverpool don’t normally pay 20mil+ for a player unless its worth while… Accept Carrol ofcoz…..
I’m waiting patiently for the announcement that his a LFC player but nervous that another champions League club steps in..
Liverpool will get thr!!!!!
pliss bring him in…we need player like him…
Wil just have to live in hope about him signing for Liverpool fc
Hope he comes he would be great addition to the team time to have a good revamp as current squad is weak in areas
cool newz to hear,experienced mid like him wil perform good job with lucas and others.I love liverpool fc
Any player who can score nearly 30 goals in a season from midfield at any level is worth having a go with let’s get him signed ynwa
That’s a good idea mkhitaryan become best player like coutinho and sturridge i wish agood time for lfc by YNWA
nice good player
We truely need player like Henrikh mkhitaryan playing with countiho the young MESSI… YNWA!
yes i love him
Instead of spending £25-£27M on one class quality player( Mkhitryan), Rodgers should spend £28M on three class quality Spanish attacking players who will bring more class, creativity, excitement,goals, quality, quality competition, mobility, pace and speed to attack.
These are the three players Rodgers should bring to the club this summer instead of Mkhitrayan at £25-£28M
1: AM: I Munian(20) Of A Bilbao for £10-£15M
2: RW / RWF: Nolitto(26) Of Benfica for £3-£6M
3: LW / LWF: Capel(25) Of Sporting Clube De Portugal / Lisbon for £4-£7M
All are class, quality players, mobile, pacey, quick players who would be able to stretch any team in world football.
unproven guys is a fail for liverpool, just buy a couple of expensive players to sort out the club and get it back on track!
All i want is to see him in a liverpool shirt,am tired of this transfer problem.
