Ukrainian agent Igor Kryvenko believes Shakhktar Donetsk winger Mikhayl Mudrik will move to Premier League leaders Arsenal in January . That’s so little as the player’s agency set the price inflated, according to the UFABET.
Mikel Arteta wants to bring the 21-year-old to the club in the winter after struggling with the injury of main attacker Gabriel Jesus, but Shakhtar is available. The Gunners’ offer has been rejected twice, the first for £52m and the second for £62m.
The Ukrainian giants are expected to demand as much as £88m (€100m) for Mudrik if they are to leave in January, which has led Cravengo to consider it a “favourable” move. It is very unlikely that Arsenal will be successful in this deal.
“Shakhtar won’t let Mudrik go because of the money they’ve offered. I think €100m is too small. A Ukrainian player can never be as valuable as a Dutch player. You have to look at reality. It’s purely a matter of market value and Shakta seems to be taking advantage of that.”
“This child is in a golden cage. I know last summer Brentford offered an interesting figure for Mudric but Donets turned it down and they seem to want to reflect on all the talent they lost in that transfer. Move teams that have failed in the past,” said the Ukrainian agent.
Incidentally, Igor Krivenko is the agent of another player, not Mikhilo Mudric, who is represented by Olexi Aljokin.
