Henrikh Mkhitaryan Spotted in London Hotel to Force Through Liverpool Move: Daily Soccer Report

Henrikh Mkhitaryan Henrikh Mkhitaryan Spotted in London Hotel to Force Through Liverpool Move: Daily Soccer Report

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is trying to force through a move to Liverpool after he was spotted in a London hotel today.

The £23million-rated Mkhitaryan is supposed to be in Austria with Shakhtar Donestk during their pre-season training. The team have threatened to fine Mkhitaryan for missing training. However, Shakhtar reportedly only own part of his rights, thus making the transfer a very complicated process.

Now that Mkhitaryan was spotted in a London hotel this morning, and it is definitely him according to a Liverpool supporter who snapped the photo and saw him flash his Armenian passport, the ball is in Liverpool’s court to see if they can close the deal.

Mkhitaryan scored a Ukrainian league record 25 goals last season.

Have you seen Mkhitaryan play? Would he be a good fit at Liverpool, and is he worth the £23million price tag? Share your opinion in the comments section below.

    Guys I’m sitting in a posh London hotel and in front of me, checking in is Henrikh Mkhitaryan. It’s definitely him, confirmed not just by his appearance but also by his Armenian passport which he flashed while checking. I took a picture as proof – please let me know how to post it on this site or I can email it to someone who is better informed
    Picture proof below: http://imgur.com/uBSB3gE

    Hey guys – just some background on my encounter now that I have some time at lunch:
    I had a meeting at this hotel in the morning and was waiting for my client to arrive (my client was running a bit late). I saw Mickey sitting by the checkin desk and initially thought he was just a perfect doppelgänger. As I continued to wait (I was standing 1m apart from him) I became more convinced that this could be our man.
    At this point I went up to the checkin desk to get a closer inspection with just a random question for the receptionist. That’s where I saw his key card and passport lying face up on the counter closest to where he was sitting. I googled “Armenian passport” on my iPhone and it was the exact same blue document. I stepped back, took a pic and sent it to my friend (massive Dortmund fan who is hoping he plays in the yellow and black next year). Once he confirmed he thought it was Mickey as well, I walked up and said “welcome to Liverpool” he smiled awkwardly / in a scared way and said “Thanks, lets see”. His English was pretty good based on what he said to me and my eavesdropping of his chat with the receptionist.
    My client came in at that point while at the same time a large fat man on a cell phone greeted Mickey – he was no one I recognised, though I don’t know what his agent / manager looks like.
    I’m a London based red and have no reason to lie to my fellow reds. I’m also a long time lurker and this sort of stuff pops up here so I was pretty excited I got to share as well. Read into it as little or as much as you want!
