Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk has told CBS Sports that he hopes to secure a dream move to Arsenal in January.
The Gunners had tracked Mudryk during the summer transfer window alongside fellow Premier League club Everton.
The Ukrainian is coming off the back of an impressive past campaign for Donetsk. He managed two goals and nine assists in 19 appearances in all competitions.
The 21-year-old was on the scoresheet in Hirnyky’s 4-1 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League on September 6.
Donetsk may have a fight on their hands to keep Mudryk as he has admitted he would find it hard to turn down a move to the Gunners.
The Ukrainian winger was asked about speculation over a move:
“In the winter we will see. There’s been a lot of discussions about a transfer and speculation about what clubs want me. But it’s normal. Right now I’m in Shakhtar and I want to play in this team, I love this team, I love every guy in this team. Shakhtar is now my home.”
Mudryk was then asked for his thoughts on a move to the Gunners:
“Yes, yes. I think every player dreams of the Premier League. It’s hard to say but Arsenal is a very good team, very good coach. I like the way they play. From my side I can’t say no [to Arsenal] but a transfer is not just up to my decision.”
Gunners247 reports that Mudryk’s asking price is £30 million. The young forward has four years left on his current deal at the Donbass Arena. He can play as a right-winger, left-winger and in attacking midfield.
