Borussia Dortmund star: Liverpool move is still possible

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has admitted a move to join Liverpool is possible this summer.

The 25-year-old Armenian attacker has been in fine form for the Bundesliga giants this term, scoring 9 goals and making 7 assists in all competition for Borussia Dortmund.

However, the playmaker’s impressive performance this term in both the Bundesliga and Champions League has attracted attention from a number of Premier League giants, of which it appears Merseyside hopefuls Liverpool are ahead of the pack.

“Of course I know how much Liverpool wanted me, but what happened, happened. I'm now in Dortmund and very happy and proud about it,” he explained of the failed summer switch.

"Can I see myself at Liverpool in the future? You know that it doesn't depend entirely on me. But this is life and everything is possible.”

This appears on the surface as a 180-degree turn around on his comments last year that the Reds’ past glories weren’t enough to convince him Anfield should be his next destination.

“Liverpool have a great past,” he said back in July 2013 following his move to Dortmund.

“But Borussia Dortmund has a great present. I made this decision with my heart.”

Mkhitaryan signed for Dortmund from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer for £23.6 million but it now appears he has had a change of heart as he now expresses demonstratively his desire to play in the Premier League.

"Would I want to play in England at some point? Bundesliga is not a worse league than the Premier League. That's for sure."

He had stated back in November last year that money had not been the reason he chose to join Borussia Dortmund over Liverpool but rather his desire to play first-team football on a regular basis for fear he might find himself on the bench at Anfield.

"I have come to Dortmund to play and not to sit on the bench, as might initially have been the case in England," he explained.
