Liverpool appear unlikely to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan after the midfielder’s cool words towards the Anfield club rocked transfer talks with Shakhtar Donetsk.
Mkhitaryan, 24, revealed on his Facebook
“I am happy to see that people show keen interest in my career but I would like to ask all not only to refrain from making comments but also to prevent the spread of unverified and false information.
“I am not meddling with these affairs. If have a contract with a club, I just fulfil it.”
The Reds were all set beat off competition for Mkhitaryan, who has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs, and land the midfielder for a fee around £20, according to The Express.
However, Shakhtar are guaranteed Champions League football next season after winning the Russian top flight and the Armenian international is likely to again play a major role in their European campaign.
