After weeks of looking as though Liverpool were in pole position to sign the Armenian midfielder, a number of German outlets are today reporting that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be joining Borussia Dortmund.
The ongoing saga surrounding Henrikh Mkhitaryan continues, now with talk of an agreement for the player between Liverpool and Shakhtar, as well as a thinly-veiled reference from one of the more trusted journalistics sources involved.
The latest twist in Henrikh Mkhitaryan's potential move to Liverpool comes this evening as the Ukrainian club's chief executive, Sergei Palkin, claims that no formal approach has been made by Liverpool.
Shakhtar's talented attacking midfielder is the subject of Liverpool interest, but conflicting reports about just how serious their intentions are--and who they're contingent on--leave room for little certainty as to what's going to happen.
Reports earlier in the week suggested that Henrikh Mkhitaryan was target whether or not Liverpool were able to hang onto Luis Suarez, but more recent news has the club further off a deal than previously thought.
