Liverpool in the battle to sign 21-year-old Ukrainian forward

Liverpool will reportedly send scouts to watch Shakhtar Donetsk forward Mykhaylo Mudryk in action amid transfer rumours linking him with several top teams. Ukraine international surely has a big future in the game and it would be exciting for PL supporters to see the winger in England in the near future.

Mykhaylo has caught the eye in the UCL this campaign, showing himself to be an elite prospect and surely one to watch in terms of interest from bigger teams in the months ahead.

There have already been plenty of transfer rumours involving Mudryk, with the latest report stating that Liverpool and Arsenal are likely to be two of the main clubs competing for his signature.

There are no concrete updates on the 21-year-old forward for the moment, though any interested teams will face paying nearly €45-50m to get this deal done. The Ukrainian winger could be a fine fit at Anfield, who would do well to rebuild this ageing squad with a promising young forward like this.

With the Reds often enjoying some of their best players during transitions, the Ukrainian could be a really effective player for Liverpool. Despite dominating games for the most part, when the Reds hit teams on the counter-attack, they are deadly. Adding the pace of Mykhaylo Mudryk, particularly for more difficult fixtures, maybe in the UCL, could be a smart bit of business from the Reds.
