Dortmund’s Mkhitaryan decision imminent

“The boys are back” says Klopp as Liverpool prepare to face Sevilla

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has revealed the Bundesliga club will make a decision on the future of midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan this week.

The 27-year-old, who is entering the final year of his current deal, has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for English Premier League trio Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.

And, after Mkhitaryan’s agent, Mino Raiola, indicated that his client did not plan on extending his stay, Dortmund could be tempted to cash in on the midfielder in the current transfer window, rather than lose him on a free transfer.

“We will make a decision this week,” Zorc told Bild, when asked for an update on Mkhitaryan’s situation.

Mkhitaryan enjoyed a successful 2015/16 campaign, netting 11 goals and providing 15 assists in 31 Bundesliga appearances.

He also contributed a combined total of eight goals and nine assists in the Europa League and German Cup (DFB-Pokal).
