Arsenal target Mudryk: Shakhtar price has shocked me; I'm very upset

Shakhtar Donetsk ace Mykhaylo Mudryk is frustrated by his €100m valuation.

Mudryk’s employers Shakhtar Donetsk have slapped a €100m price tag on him after his impressive start to the season. The Ukraine international, 21, has scored eight goals – including three in the Champions League – and provided eight assists in 16 games.

The winger’s form has attracted the likes of Arsenal. It’s believed the Gunners are considering signing Mudryk in January to bolster their chances of winning the Premier League title. They are currently five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table.

“When I found out about my price, I wasn’t just surprised – I was shocked,” Mudryk told Sport Arena.

“I have a long-term contract with Shakhtar [set to expire in December 2026], I give all my strength and energy so that Shakhtar achieves maximum results… but every football player has a dream to play in a top club and in a top championship – I am no exception.

“But I am 100 per cent sure that they are unlikely to buy a player from the championship of Ukraine for 100 million… I will not hide that I was very upset. The amount of 100 million puts a barrier for my transition to the top championship, which I so dreamed of. I can’t say that my dream was killed, but wounded – that’s for sure.”
