Liverpool gone quiet on Shakhtar ace Mkhitaryan

Liverpool have not made any offers for Henrikh Mkhitaryan according to Shakhtar Donetsk chief executive Sergei Palkin.

Liverpool have not made any offers for Henrikh Mkhitaryan according to Shakhtar Donetsk chief executive Sergei Palkin.

The 24-year old Armenian midfielder has been linked with both the Reds and Borussia Dortmund in recent weeks but Palkin says there has been no movement for the £25.5million-rated ace.

"There is nothing new about Mkhitaryan," Palkin told Football.ua.

"I already have said that Borussia Dortmund offered €23 million (£20m) for him; this was the sole offer. [But] our position is €30 million (£25.5m).

"Mkhitaryan's contract does not specify a compensation payment. Thirty million dollars need to be paid to sever the contract unilaterally.

"If we go with the civilized way and sell a player but he severs the contract, we specify a transfer value of €30million."
