Arsenal and West Ham target eyed by new club ahead of January transfer window

Arsenal and West Ham target Mykhaylo Mudryk, who is a key player for Shakhtar Donetsk and Ukraine, has a new suitor in France.

Arsenal and West Ham target Mykhaylo Mudryk has reportedly emerged on the radar of OGC Nice.

The Shakhtar Donetsk winger appears to be a man in-demand going into the January transfer window.

Mudryk, 21, is a Ukraine international with eight caps under his belt.

His recent performances have attracted the attention of Premier League clubs and 90min reported last month that representatives from West Ham and Arsenal have watched him in action, along with other scouts from the likes of Brentford, Leeds United, Brighton and Hove Albion, Everton, Newcastle United and Wolves.

However, in this latest update, The Sun are reporting that Nice now ‘lead’ the race for his signature and are willing to fork out £25million for his signature.

The French side made some eye-catching signings over the summer such as Ross Barkley, Aaron Ramsey and Kasper Schmeichel.

What next for Mudryk?

Mudryk is being tipped for a bright future in the game and has established himself as one of Shahktar’s key players already.

He has been with them since 2016 after they snapped him up as a youngster after spells at Metalist Kharkiv and Dnipro.

The attacker has since gone on to make 31 appearances for the Ukrainian giants and has chipped in with four goals, as well as having a couple of loan spells away at Arsenal Kyiv and Desna Chernihiv to help boost his development.
