Liverpool transfer target scores wonderful solo goal


Liverpool transfer target Henrik Mkhitaryan scored a wonderful solo goal in Armenia's 4-0 victory over Denmark on Tuesday night.

The Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder ran down the right before cutting in, beating a couple of defenders and firing past Danish goalkeeper Stephan Andersen.

Mkhitaryan, a £22m target for the Anfield club, scored a record 25 goals in the Ukrainian Premier League last season, despite operating as an attacking midfielder.

Even with the high price tag, Liverpool are still interested after tracking the 24-year-old throughout last season and believe Mkhitaryan would consider a move to Anfield despite the current lack of European football on offer and rival interest.

Mkhitaryan has been named Armenia's player of the year on three occasions and last night's stunning effort was his 11th for his country.

The result against Denmark lifted Armenia above the Danes in their World Cup qualifying group. Armenia now sit in fourth, eight points behind leaders Italy. Bulgaria are second with Czech Republic third.
