Arsenal summer target has made it clear that he would be ready to move to the Emirates, telling CBS Sports that he can’t say no if the Gunners come calling in January.
Mudryk has established himself as one of the most exciting talents in Europe right now. He has been in superb form for Shakhtar Donetsk. And he was the star of the show this week in their Champions League win over RB Leipzig.
The 21-year-old scored one and set up two more as Shakhtar won 4-1 in what proved to be Domenico Tedesco’s final game in charge of the Bundesliga side.
His performance would have certainly caught the eye of Arsenal supporters. Fabrizio Romano reported during the summer that the Gunners explored a potential deal for the young winger.
It remains to be seen if Arsenal go back in in a future window. But it would certainly appear that Mudryk is ready to make the move if the chance presents itself.
“Yes, I think every guy dreams about playing in the Premier League,” he told CBS Sports.
“Arsenal is a very good team, very good coach. I like the way they play. Yes, from my side, I can’t say no, but a transfer is not only my decision.”
Mudryk can’t say no to Arsenal
Mudryk appears to be absolutely perfect for Arsenal. They have been superb at finding some amazing young players playing outside of Europe’s major leagues in the last few years.
Mudryk is becoming more and more of a household name. But he would surely not cost as much as he would if he was potentially arriving from a club in one of the top five leagues.
Arsenal were unable to add another attacking player to their ranks before the window shut. So it may be one area they look to strengthen in the January transfer window.
And you would imagine that Mudryk will be one player they keep a very close eye on in the months ahead.
