Should Liverpool revive their interest in Henrikh Mkhitaryan?

Heinrich Mkhitaryan

Juventus are being linked with a move for the Armenia international, a man the Reds wanted 18 months ago.

With Borussia Dortmund’s domestic struggles this season, a number of their star players are being linked with moves away from Signal Iduna Park.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is said to be a target for Juventus this January, but if the Armenia international is available should Liverpool revisit their interest in him?

Brendan Rodgers admitted back in 2013 that the Reds made an attempt to sign the playmaker from Shakhtar Donetsk, but the midfielder opted instead to move to Dortmund.

With the Reds having an underwhelming campaign after last season’s title push, reinforcements are seemingly necessary at Anfield to get them back into silverware contention.

Liverpool recently are said to have made an attempt to sign Xherdan Shaqiri, and as such Mkhitaryan could well be an interesting alternative after the Swiss playmaker moved to Inter.

The Armenian proved in his days at Shakhtar that he has a real eye for goal and can perform at the highest club level, the Champions League, but is now lacking in confidence.

Since moving to the Bundesliga the 25-year-old has failed to replicate his best form and as such is a player that represents a gamble for any potential new employer.

Given that Rodgers is obviously a fan of Mkhitaryan and has tried to sign him in the past however, Liverpool could well take advantage of Dortmund’s situation to prize away a player that could have joined the Anfield side back in 2013.
