Liverpool have reportedly agreed a 25.7 million deal to sign Henrikh
Mkhitaryan from Shakhtar Donetsk, according to the Russian newspaper
Sport Express.

The news was reportedly first aired on Armenian television programme
Extra Time on Friday, where it was announced that Mkhitaryan had
agreed terms with a foreign club over a transfer.

However, Sport Express went on to report that Ukraine's top goalscorer
will fly to Merseyside for a medical soon and sign on the dotted line.
The attacking midfielder scored 25 goals for Shakhtar last season.

With a reported fee of approximately 25.7m, the 24-year-old will be
Liverpool's second most expensive signing in history, after Andy
Carroll was signed in January 2011 for a whopping 35 million from
Newcastle United.
