Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is ruled out of action for a month with an ankle injury.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been ruled out of action "for up to four weeks" with an ankle injury.

The 24-year-old, who joined the German outfit from Shakhtar Donetsk this summer, suffered the knock in Tuesday's pre-season win over Luzern.

"Borussia Dortmund have to make do without Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the coming weeks," a club statement read.

"According to team doctor Markus Braun he will probably be unavailable for up to four weeks."

The Armenian will therefore miss the DFL-Supercup fixture with Bayern Munich on July 27.

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