Shocked Arsenal target admits no one will pay 100m euros for him

Mykhailo Mudryk has been on Arsenal’s radar for some time now as the Gunners look to improve their squad.

The Ukrainian has been one of the best players in Europe this season as he shines for Shakhtar Donetsk.

He did well in the Champions League group stages and attracted the attention of more clubs.

Arsenal is one of them, but his present employers want to make a lot of money from his sale.

Reports claim the winger is valued at 100m euros as they believe he has the same skills as Jack Grealish of Manchester City.

However, the youngster does not think he is worth that price and even accuses his employers of sabotaging his dream of playing for a top club.

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

“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.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mudryk is one of the finest young attackers around and has interest from several clubs, but that does not make him a 100m euros player.

He does not even play in one of the top leagues in Europe, so it is insane for Shakhtar to think anyone will pay that much to sign him.


  1. Shaktar is trying to hold onto him until summer. The 100 million is to keep teams at bay in January, so they can leverage his presence to bolster this season’s campaign. No manager wants to lose a playerl ike this in the winter; this kind of publci demand is meant to keep the player’s agent out of the ears of other team executives.

  2. It so wrong for Shaktar to hold on to the player’s future. The lad wants to move to greener playing fields. Make it happens for Christ’s Sake.

  3. By the way, what does Shakhata hope to achieve if they keep their Mykhayio Mudryk till next summer transfer window before they sell him? Are they still in this season’s Champions League or Europa League? If any of the 2 apples to them. Then their wanting to hold on to their player till next summer makes sense.. But if not, i don’t think there is much need for Shakhata to deny Mudryk exiting the club next January window to go and pasture new at a top Western European club side probably Arsenal.
    But that will depend on if Arsenal want to sign him next January when by then they would have weighed up their options after the World Cup and decided is Mudryk that they want to sign. And Mudryk himself too shows a serious commitments to join Arsenal. However, I don’t think the Gunners will go out of their ways to pay €100 to Shakhata to sign their Mudryk next Jan. But will negotiate a much lower transfer fee with Shakhata to get their man. Say, something in the region of £30-35m.

  4. Better to pay that type of money for Bellingham,

    Our two top midfielders are almost thirty, the English youngster is a top talent that could serve us well for many seasons to come, while this position is an urgent necessity that has to be fill sooner than later.

    1. I love my term arsenal and I know arsenal can’t buy him 100 cos is too expensive for a single player, let’s flash back what happened when we wanted to by Madison crystal palace was demanding 80 and above but arteta went for plan B odegard at the region of 35- 40 don’t u see what odegard is doing at the moment so clubs should be wise when buying a player, lokaku was bought at 105 what happened at the end of the day, so arsenal should look for another alternative like Wilfred zaha I think he is at his 30 but he is good to go.

    1. I rate Jasper Lindstrøm higher because he plays in a much more competitive league and has more composure.He can play both as a wide attacking player and as a central attacking midfielder

  5. The boy really loves arsenal and confirms that he always check on arsenal he is also good with the ball. If we can agree 50m with shacktar that will be good

  6. Honestly I don’t know the player (Mudryk) that much as I don’t follow Ukrainian league. Come to think of it €100m is huge even the player himself admits it. If his employers know the player’s value, then the player himself know his worth than even his agent knows. I hope my team Arsenal is not put into ransom business because I believe there are many players out there who can come for cheap yet make instant impact. I would urge Edu, Arteta, and everyone responsible with players recruitment to scour other markets notably Brazil. I read news Arsenal are interested in a midfielder from Brazil, perhaps they should go for him. Just my opinion.

  7. 100 million is a bit steep for a player coming from Ukrainian league but there are alternatives like Maddison. I really like the guy cz apart from being play makes he also has lots of goals in him
