Shakhtar demands Mudryk's transfer be more valuable than Antony's

The 21-year-old winger, Mykhaylo Mudryk, has been linked with Premier League clubs in recent months. Shakhtar believes the winger is already a better player than Antony as they want this fact to be visible comparing bids to £82m Man United paid for the Brazilian.

Being the Gunners' main target of the January transfer window,

Mykhaylo Mudryk

has already scored 3 goals and recorded two assists in this season’s Champions League. Moreover, he is Shakhtar’s top scorer in the domestic league with seven goals and seven assists.

After rejecting a reported £62million offer from


, Shakhtar sporting director

Carlo Nicolini


"On the premise that we don't have any need to transfer him, we said in due time that we value the player very highly, more so that other profiles like Antony. This is serious; the parameter."

The Italian director believes clubs from his homeland don't seize the opportunity of signing Mudryk as Arsenal faces competition from Chelsea for his signature. However, he reveals


was earlier in contact with the club over a possible transfer.


The problem is that Italian clubs don't seize opportunities,"

Nicolini said.

"See Milan with Enzo Fernandez, who is now worth over €100million. When you get to a player on time you have to sink the shot, otherwise the prices change."

"The Azzurri arrive before many competitors.

"They enquired about many players but without making an official proposal.

"They asked us not only about Mudryk, but also [Manor] Solomon, [Anatoliy] Trubin, [Heorhiy] Sudakov or even before that [Mykola] Matvienko or [Viktor] Kovalenko, who then went to Atalanta."
