Lucescu can see BVB star Mkhitaryan moving to Juventus

Mircea Lucescu can see Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving to Juventus.

The attacking midfielder has been linked with Juve this month.

Shakhtar Donetsk coach Lucescu said: "I wouldn't be surprised to see him at Juve.

"He's a guy who needs to feel loved and Dortmund have put him under too much pressure. I think his time at Borussia is over.

"I could easily see him playing behind Llorente and Tevez, or indeed any great champions. Mkhitaryan is quicker and a more willing runner than [other rumoured target Wesley] Sneijder.

"Henrikh is a complete player, he creates, wins the ball and counter attacks. Now he has to find the right environment.

"In Germany he's been greeted with suspicion because he's Armenian."
