Friend of Liverpool target Henrikh Mkhitaryan posts pic on Instagram confirming Dortmund move

Liverpool fans (and presumably their coaching staff) had appeared to give up hope of signing Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan on Friday.

Widespread reports in Germany confirmed that Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund had beaten Liverpool to the signing of Mkhitaryan.

The goal scoring midfielder from Shakhtar is now set for a medical at Borussia Dortmund today and Liverpool have reportedly targeted other midfielders, such as Jorginho from Verona.

On Sunday night, a friend of Henrikh Mkhitaryan posted a picture on Instagram with a good luck message to the Armenian in Germany.
