The Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been in superlative form this season and has come into view for Spurs, as Andre Villas-Boas is preparing for the worst case scenario if Gareth Bale leaves, express.co.uk
Brendan Rodgers is gearing up for a busy summer window and Steven Gerrard has already intimated that the club need to make additions to challenge for a top four spot next season.
The Reds are willing to let Martin Skrtel, who has attracted interest from Anzhi and Zenit St Petersburg, leave in order to facilitate a move for Mkhitaryan who could fetch up to £10m.
Skrtel’s agent Karol Ksonto was coy about his client’s Liverpool future and suggested that the situation will be resolved at the end of the season.
Mkhitaryan is viewed as a possible successor to Gerrard, who has been one of Liverpool’s most consistent performers again this season. Mkhitaryan plundered 19 goals in just 20 games for Shakhtar this season.
