Shakhtar Donetsk confirm Arsenal interest in Mykhailo Mudryk ahead of the January transfer window | Football
Shakhtar Donetsk’s deputy sporting director Carlo Nicolini has confirmed Arsenal’s interest in Mykhailo Mudryk ahead of the January transfer window.
Mudryk, who primarily plays on the left wing, has been in sublime form for Shakhtar this season with 10 goals and eight assists so far.
Arsenal are understood to be confident of completing a deal for the Ukraine international next month, while the 21-year-old is also keen on making the move to Arteta’s side.
And now Shakhtar claim Arsenal are among the clubs who are keen on signing Mudryk.
‘Mudryk has received the message, like all the other players, to show up for the training camp in Antalya on January 9,’ Nicolini told TVPlay.
‘Arsenal’s interest is there, I can’t deny it. However, today he is called up for the first training camp which runs from January 9 to February 9, then in Warsaw we will prepare for the next European games.
‘Many clubs have taken an indirect interest in Mudryk, without an official offer. There have been a lot of phone calls.
‘I believe that today the Italian teams find it difficult to take a profile like this, both for what it is worth and for the lack of courage in investing in such a profile.’
