Liverpool transfers: Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan plays down speculation suggesting he could leave
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has played down speculation suggesting the Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder is set for a medical at Liverpool.
The Armenia international has been heavily linked with a move to the Reds this summer, with the Merseyside outfit reportedly submitting a £23m bid for the Donetsk man.
But the 24-year-old, who scored 25 goals in 28 top-flight appearances last season, insisted there is no deal in place that would see him leave the Ukrainian champions.
“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,” Mkhitaryan posted on his Facebook page.
“I am not meddling with these affairs. If have a contract with a club, I just fulfil it.
“If an agreement is reached between clubs I will be informed of the details and then will accept or reject it.
“I’m not planning any media communication because I cannot comment on things of which I have no information. Professional players have rules in life and I’m obliged to respect them.
“I promise that you will hear any news first on my Facebook page or the official club website.”
Mkhitaryan has scored 40 goals in 102 appearances for Shakhtar since joining from Metalurh Donetsk in 2010.
Brendan Rodgers has already signed Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas and Kolo Toure in the summer transfer window.
