Liverpool prepare £22m bid

Shakhtar winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Shakhtar winger Henrikh MkhitaryanThere are interested looks on the faces of Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern after The Guardian today links the Reds with a summer move for Shakhtar Donetsk’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan who will be available for around £22 million.

The Armenian international, who scored an incredible 25 goals in the Ukrainian Premier League last season despite playing as an attacking midfielder, has been lined up for a move to Anfield after he admitted that he wanted to play for ‘one of the strongest clubs in the world’.

It is understood that Mkhitaryan would consider a move to England despite the lack of European football at Anfield and Liverpool’s owners Fenway Sports Group are prepared to give Brendan Rodgers the funds needed to bring the 25-year-old to the club. 

With uncertainty remaining about Luis Suarez given a possible swoop by Spanish giants Real Madrid, Liverpool desperately need to recruit at least one more attacking option although the paper indicates that the Armenian was a key transfer target before Suarez began pushing for a move away.

The club have agreed a £15 million deal with West Ham United for outcast Andy Carroll but the transfer has now stalled after the former Newcastle man was unsure whether to sign long-term for the Hammers. This transfer impasse could affect any deal for the attacking midfielder although they do expect to complete the £7.7 million transfer of Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas later this week.

Can Rodgers secure the highly-coveted talent this summer? Rate this rumour below.
