Agent of Arsenal & Chelsea target Mykhailo Mudryk provides update on future

The agent of in-demand Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhailo Mudryk has, on Friday, provided a fresh insight into his future.

The name of wide-man Mudryk has of course taken its place front and centre in the media headlines for several months now.

This comes after the Ukrainian was added to the winter wishlists of not one, but two of the Premier League’s heavyweight clubs.

Arsenal, to this point, have been most widely tipped to land Mudryk, with the youngster understood to favour a move to the Emirates over any other potential destination.

London rivals Chelsea, though, have too recently entered the fray, backed fully in their bid by new owner Todd Boehly.

Mudryk, in turn, is expected to depart current employers Shakhtar before the month is out, albeit with his landing spot remaining up in the air as things stand.

Speaking to the media late on Friday, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his client’s future was put to Mudryk’s representative.

Oleksiy Alekhin, though, was in fact keen to play down the chances of an imminent transfer.

Instead, he went on to explain that:

“Mudryk is a Shakhtar player and the decision on his transfer will be made by the board of the club.

“Mykhailo is now preparing to go with Shakhtar to the training camp.”
