Liverpool gone quiet on Shakhtar ace Mkhitaryan

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

"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."
