Hibs, Motherwell and St. Mirren are all chasing Armenian international goalkeeper Henri Avagyan – according to reports.

The Scotsman has reported that the 23-year-old has been offered to all three clubs for a summer transfer, although they say Hibs have distanced themselves from a move.

Avagyan has one cap for Armenia and is likely to be part of the squad for their upcoming European Championship qualifiers next month.

His current club Alashkert were defeated 3-0 home and away by Celtic in Champions League qualifying earlier this season.

Hibs currently have on-loan Liverpool keeper Adam Bogdan and Ofir Marciano competing between the sticks.

 

Marciano has established himself as number one at Easter Road with a string of solid performances.

A string of injuries, however, have meant Marciano has been in and out of the side.

Bogdan will return to Anfield in the summer so some competition will be needed to push – and provide cover – Marciano.

Avagyan is out of contract this summer and would be free to move – although Hibs’ search for a manager won’t help things.

With Motherwell and St. Mirren both also reportedly interested, clubs will need to move quickly to make sure they don’t miss out.

Avagyan joined Alashkert last summer but has only managed five appearances for the Armenians.
