Liverpool losing race for Mkhitaryan

Liverpool are prepared to admit defeat in their pursuit of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who looks likely to join Borussia Dortmund.

The Reds have long tracked the highly-rated Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker although the price has proved to be a stumbling block to concluding a deal.

New interest from Champions League finalists Dortmund has also complicated matters, and Liverpool are now likely to turn their attentions elsewhere.

The Armenia international is valued by Shakhtar at £25.5 million although Dortmund are believed to have tabled a bid of £19.5 million. Dortmund were also linked to Ajax’s Christian Eriksen.

Shakhtar manager Mircea Lucescu warned Mkhitaryan that joining Liverpool, who are not competing in the Champions League, would be a mistake.
