Mkhitaryan to join Dortmund (not Liverpool), agrees personal terms but fee not settled [Bild]

Have Liverpool lost the race to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan?

German paper Bild have made a dramatic claim on Friday afternoon, claiming that Mkhitaryan has chosen to snub Liverpool’s approach in favour of move to Borussia Dortmund.

Bild report that Mkhitaryan has set his mind on joining Dortmund, and the Armenian international has agreed personal terms with the 2012-13 Champions League runners-up.

Whilst Bild also detail that Shakhtar Donetsk have failed to agree a transfer fee with Dortmund for the attacking midfielder, rumours are swishing about that Borussia officials have now flown to Ukraine to try to hammer out a deal with Ukrainian champions.

Widespread belief is that Shakhtar are demanding €30 million (about £25.5 million) for Mkhitaryan.
