Liverpool target Mkhitaryan pushing for Anfield move

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers isn't ready to drop his pursuit of Armenia ace Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Daily Star says Rodgers is keen to add ­Mkhitaryan, but has been told he must fork out £25m if they want the Shakhtar Donetsk ace.

The attacking midfielder has his heart set on Anfield and failed to report for ­Shakhtar's pre-season training camp in Austria.

The Ukrainian side's chief executive Sergei Palkin said: "I don't know where Mkhitaryan is. We are prepared to sell him for €30m (£25m).

"This offer stands for the next 10 days. If Mkhitaryan wishes to leave, they have to pay this amount for him."
