Henrikh Mkhitaryan open to Liverpool move

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan has admitted he would consider a move to Liverpool at some point in his career.

The £24.4m summer signing from Shakhtar Donetsk was heavily linked with a move to Anfield before he completed his switch to Dortmund last summer.

But he's refused to completely rule out the possibility of moving to Liverpool at a later date - although he insists he is enjoying life in the Bundesliga.

Speaking to as reported by talkSPORT, Mkhitaryan said: "Of course I know how much Liverpool wanted me, but what happened, happened.

"I'm now in Dortmund and very happy and proud about it. Can I see myself at Liverpool in the future? You know that it doesn't depend entirely on me.

"But this is life and everything is possible. Would I want to play in England at some point? Bundesliga is not a worse league than the Premier League. That's for sure."

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder has impressed in his first season in Germany, and currently has nine goals in 31 appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side.

He was signed to replace Bayern Munich-bound Mario Gotze, and Mkhitaryan has slotted straight into a talented attacking squad.

On Merseyside, Liverpool have made an unfortunate habit of just missing out on top targets in recent transfer windows.

The failure to land Mkhitaryan was followed by unsuccessful pursuits of Willian and most recently Mohamed Salah.
