Transfer: Shakhtar reject €30m Mykhaylo Mudryk bid from Everton

Mykhaylo Mudryk

Shakhtar Donetsk have confirmed that they rejected Everton’s €30 million bid for Mykhaylo Mudryk.

After impressing for the Ukrainian club recently, the winger has piqued the interest of clubs from all over Europe.

The majority of that interest has come from England, with Arsenal and Everton both rumoured to be interested in signing him.

In a recent interview, the man dubbed “Ukraine’s Neymar” admitted he wouldn’t be able to say no to the London club, but it’s their Premier League rivals who appear to be the most serious.

Darijo Srna, a former player and Shakhtar sporting director, has confirmed that an Everton bid of €30 million was rejected this summer.

“We received an offer of €30m” he told CBS Sports.

“And when our president doesn’t sell a player for €30m, especially in such difficult times, he is sending a message to everyone that he wants to progress in the Champions League and to win the championship.

“Mudryk is a serious talent. After Kylian Mbappe and Vinicius Jr, he’s the best player in Europe in his position. If someone wants to buy Mudryk they must spend a lot, a lot, a lot of money and respect our club and our president.”

Mudryk’s popularity will skyrocket in January if he maintains his early-season form.

He has two goals and three assists in his first five games, with the highlight being a stunning performance in the Champions League against RB Leipzig.
