Report: Everton and Arsenal could go head to head in January for 'incredible' £30m Champions League star
Arsenal and Everton could go head to head in January to try and sign Shakthar Donetsk star, Mykhaylo Mudryk.
The Ukrainian star was on the radar of the Gunners as the summer window drew to a close and he has recently admitted he’d find a move to Arsenal hard to turn down.
And now, according to Calciomercato, Mudryk’s performance in this week’s Champions League fixtures has once again caught the eyes of Arsenal and Everton, who are both actively thinking of making a move for Mudryk in January.
Dubbed an ‘incredible dribbler’ the Ukrainian star would help fill the void left by Nicolas Pepe at Arsenal, while for Everton, he’d simply be a quality addition who immediately helps improve the first XI. The 21-year-old is seen as one of the standout players in Eastern Europe and with the conflict in Ukraine ongoing, could be open to moving away.
The January window is expected to be a busy one in 2023. Fresh off the back of a World Cup, clubs will be keen to snap up any standout players to emerge from the tournament in Qatar.
TBR’s View: Mudryk Looks The Part
As eye-catching performances go, you have to say that the display Mudryk put on in midweek was something brilliant.
The Ukrainian really looks the real deal and it was little wonder that Shakthar ended up hammering RB Leipzig in one of the surprise results of the week. Certainly, it was a performance from both player and team which will have got European scouts salivating.
Come January, both Arsenal and Everton will likely be on the lookout for fresh talent and if Mudryk keeps on impressing, then a big money move might well be on the cards.
