Armenian attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan says that he feels welcomed at new club Borussia Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund's new arrival Henrikh Mkhitaryan has said that he is a "different type of player" to Mario Gotze.

The 24-year-old, who was linked with a move to Liverpool before deciding to join Jurgen Klopp's side, comes in after Bayern Munich activated Gotze's release clause.

However, the Armenian international insists that he is not a like-for-like replacement for the 21-year-old.

"[Gotze] is a very good player, but he's a different type of player to me," he told reporters. "Mkhitaryan is Mkhitaryan, and Dortmund is Dortmund. This atmosphere, these fans - it is unique in the whole of Europe.

"I've joined a very good team and the club have taken very good care of me, which makes it very easy and is very important for a new player.

"I hope that Dortmund never regret this transfer for a second, and that they don't think any cent is wasted."

Mkhitaryan arrived at the Westfalenstadion from Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth €24m (£20.5m).

If Rodgers has a spare £22m, then Shakthar striker Henrikh Mkhitaryan could well be on his wishlist.
