Shakhtar Donetsk chief executive Sergei Palkin is willing to listen to offers for Henrikh Mkhitaryan who has been heavily linked with Liverpool.

The Merseyside club are known to want to bring the Armenia captain to Anfield this summer and Palkin recently revealed he rejected a bid of £19.5 million from Liverpool for the midfielder.

Anzhi Makhachkala and Borussia Dortmund have reportedly shown an interest in the 24-year-old and Shakhtar’s chief executive has now said the Ukrainian club will consider bids for the player.

He told Izvestia: “Henrikh is an important player in our team. Shakhtar wants to keep him, but we are willing to listen and consider all suggestions for a transfer.

“We have already parted with Willian (to Anzhi) and Fernandinho (to Manchester City), but the club will not just sell players. In the near future we will also gain quality, designed to replace the leading players, possibly including Henrikh.''
