Henrikh Mkhitaryan Reportedly Liverpool's Top Transfer Target

With Iago Aspas settled, Liverpool apparently turn the weight of their attentions to Armenian attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who's been linked with the club for most of the past year.

Liverpool's early work in the transfer market apparently continues, this time with Armenian attacking midfielder and Shakhtar Donetsk standout Henrikh Mkhitaryan identified as the club's top target. It's an oft-discussed and well-like link for most; his name has been talked about for most of the season, partially because of the excellent season he had for the Ukranian Premier League Champions.

We talked about what he'd add the other day, and most seem to think that he'd be a first eleven player right out of the gates. Liverpool's lead online/radio broadcaster John Bradley also does announcing for Russian football and is in the know (literally, not in Twitter-speak) for some of the smaller European leagues as well, and spoke very highly of what Mkhitaryan could add to the squad:

It's another positive link in what's shaping up to be a more positive than usual early transfer season for Liverpool, and though there's plenty of time for everything to go pear-shaped--and some of it probably will--the types of targets the club have identified have nearly all been ones that would leave Liverpool in better stead heading into the 2012-2013 season. Little doubt that Mkhitaryan fits that mold, and now we can hope they're able to do what's necessary to bring him aboard.
