What Real Madrid fans did to Mykhaylo Mudryk after watching his display in their home ground last season
The Gunners are desperate to add Mudryk to their ranks to aid their unlikely Premier League title charge.
His performances this season in particular have drawn the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
In both group stage campaigns he’s taken part in, Mudryk has come up against Real Madrid.
Shakhtar haven’t beaten the Spanish side on any of the past four occasions, although they did earn a 1-1 draw in their most recent meeting.
Mudryk scored three goals and provided two assists this season, although none of those came against Carlo Ancelotti’s team.
This is an improvement on last season’s campaign when Mudryk mainly featured off the bench, and failed to find the back of the net.
However, as per BT Sport, via Madrid Xtra, Real Madrid fans applauded Mudryk at the Bernabeu when he was substituted.

Arsenal will be hoping Mudryk not only joins the club this month, but is part of a Champions League campaign at The Emirates this season.
Mikel Arteta’s side have missed out on Europe’s premier competition for the past five years.
The Gunners currently have two opportunities to qualify for the Champions League this campaign.
They look set to finish in the top four of the Premier League, and will be hoping to keep pace with Manchester City throughout the campaign.
Arsenal could also win the Europa League this season, which would automatically put them in the hat next year.
The Ukrainian will want to be a part of that journey this season, and a deal could happen soon.
Mudryk will be hoping he hears the applause of Arsenal fans next time he’s playing against Real Madrid.
