Mkhitaryan set to leave Shakhtar

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has announced his intent to leave Ukraine at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old has an impressive record of 32 goals in 63 appearances at his current club, and has won admirers throughout Europe with solid performances in the Champions League.

And the Armenian has now indicated he is ready to take the next step in his career – possibly to England – with a number of top teams interested in a move, suggesting he will force a transfer should his employers not want to sell.

“For every player, to play for the strongest clubs in the world is a dream, and the main goal,” the attacker said.

“I will do everything possible to move this summer to a different team.”

Mkhitaryan helped Shakhtar progress from Group E of this season’s Champions League ahead of Premier League club Chelsea, who are reportedly chasing his signature.

The west Londoners are expected to be busy in the summer, with interim boss Rafael Benitez already confirming his departure, while Frank Lampard’s contract expires at the end of the season.
