West Ham dealt massive blow as Mykhaylo Mudryk admits he wouldn't say no to joining Arsenal

And just yesterday, it emerged that the Hammers sent scouts to watch Mudryk in action for Ukraine against Scotland.

The 21-year-old Shakhtar Donetsk ace is a real talent and we’d absolutely love to see David Moyes bring him to the London Stadium.

It appears as though Arsenal is his preferred destination though…

West Ham could miss out on Mykhaylo Mudryk

The Ukrainian spoke to CBS and responded when asked whether he’d like to move to the Premier League one day:

I think every player dreams about the Premier League. It’s hard to say which team, but Arsenal is a very good team, very good coach, I like the way they play. From my side, I can’t say no to Arsenal. But the transfer is not only my decision.

Sport Arena claim that the Shakhtar attacker could be available for around £20 million in January or next summer.

We think he’d be a great addition for West Ham. Arsenal’s interest in the Ukrainian will undoubtedly are a problem for us though.

Mudryk has bagged four goals and 12 assists already in just 31 games for the Ukrainian outfit. And he has really shone in the Champions League this season with two goals and two assists to his name in just two games (Transfermarkt).

The young winger is a real talent.

He possesses impressive pace, exemplary technique and has a real hunger to prove himself at the very highest level.

Chris Sutton recently described the young attacker as ‘rapid’.

We’d be delighted if West Ham signed Mykhaylo Mudryk either in January or next summer.

Judging by his latest comments on his future though, Arsenal seem to be in pole position to win the race for his signature.
