Ykhaylo Mudryk has described a potential move to Arsenal as a ‘dream’.
The Ukraine striker interested Mikel Arteta over the summer as the club sought a late deal for a winger, while Brentford were another club linked.
Mudryk scored in Shakthar Donetsk’s Champions League return earlier this week and is being increasingly tipped to move away from the club.
The 21-year-old also had two assists in a 4-1 win over RB Leipzig after enjoying a breakthrough campaign last season.
Emerging as one of Europe’s hottest talents, Mudryk appeared to leave the door open to a possible move elsewhere when the transfer window reopened in January.
Speaking to CBS Sports, the winger said: “I dream (of the Premier League). I think every guy dreams of the Premier League.
“Arsenal are a very good team with a very good manager. I like the way they play. Yes it would be hard to say no from my side, I can’t say no but the transfer is not only my decision and my word.
“In winter, we will see. There was a lot of talk about the transfer and the collapse (of the deal) and who wants me but that’s normal now. I am in Shakhtar and I want to play in this team.
