Mkhitaryan Fee Agreed

Image for Mkhitaryan Fee Agreed

Armenia LFCACCORDING 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.
