Shakthar set transfer price for Mudryk

Mykhailo Murdryk has expressed shock at the price tag placed on him by his club Shakhtar Donetsk. The Ukrainian winger is a target for north London side Arsenal.

Arsenal is doing well this season in the Premier League. The Gunners are top of the Premier League table and in the next round of the Europa League.

They have so far exceeded the expectations of many and may win the league this season. With the World Cup bringing league football to a halt, Arsenal is using the opportunity to prepare its squad for the second part of the season.

With Manchester City breathing down their necks, Arsenal cannot afford to slip up as they chase their first league title since 2004. The Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has done a decent job keeping the team on its toes and ensuring they look good for their money.

Arsenal is interested in signing Shakhtar Donetsk forward Mykhailo Murdryk, but the odds of landing the player have reduced drastically. The Ukrainian club has put a hefty transfer fee on Murdryk. It is a shock for Murdryk, who is interested in a move to the north London club.

Murdryk is shocked at the hefty transfer valuation

Mykhailo Murdryk is interested in pastures anew and believes his form this season should secure him a move from Shakhtar Donetsk. Things may not go entirely to script for Murdryk as the Ukrainian club seems to want to price him out of the desired move to Arsenal.

Mykhailo Murdryk helped Shakhtar to the Europa League after they finished third in a group that included Real Madrid and RB Leipzig. The forward admits he was shocked at his valuation by Shakhtar. The Ukrainian club has put €100 million (£87.5m) on him and could be beyond the reach of Arsenal.

There have been links between Arsenal and Murdryk, but the latest revelation could prove a stumbling block for the Gunners. The 21-year-old winger attracted interest from several European clubs this summer, and his performances in the Champions League only increased his stock. With the January transfer window around the corner, Murdryk should be in demand, and Dario Srna has suggested he could command a fee of €100m (£87.5m).

Shakhtar Donetsk is playing hardball with Murdryk

Shakhtar Donetsk expects Mudryk to be snapped up soon and wants to get top value for the player. According to Srna, who spoke with The Athletic, anyone interested in buying Murdryk must pay a massive amount. The former Shakhtar player and now director of football believes Murdryk is worth a lot in the market.

Srna said the club president, Rinat Akhmetov will not sell Murdryk for peanuts. He advised interested clubs to respect the president and the club, and they must respect Murdryk. Srna said Murdryk is one of the best players around. Srna admits the price is massive, but the market decides it, not him.

He compared Murdryk to Antony and Grealish. He believes Murdryk is as valuable as the pair. He said the two players in the Premier League are the last two transfers in the past year in the same positions.

Murdryk, however, told SportsArena he was surprised at the valuation. In the interview, he claimed to be shocked but remains loyal to Shakhtar as he has a long-term contract.
