Borussia Dortmund Sign Mkhitaryan
German soccer team Borussia Dortmund have announced that they have agreed a deal to sign Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Shakhtar Donetsk.
The deal is reported to be worth around 25 million euros and the 24-year-old will sign a four-year contract with the UEFA Champions League finalists, after completing his medical on Monday.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “The Borussia Dortmund AG and FC Shaktar Donetsk have agreed on the transfer of the Armenian international Henrikh Mkhitaryan, born on the 21th of January 1989, to Borussia Dortmund.
“Borussia Dortmund and the player have reached a general agreement about the financial conditions of a contract running until the 30th of June 2017. Details are yet to be agreed upon.”
The Armenia international, who broke the Ukranian Premier League record by scoring 44 times in 106 matches for Shakhtar, becomes Jurgen Klopp’s third major signing, after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sokratis Papastathopoulos arrived earlier this month.
