Newcastle United reportedly want to add more quality on the flanks.
The reports in England suggested that Newcastle United are keen on Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk.
The 21-year-old winger has played all his life at Shakhtar Donetsk. His current deal runs out in the winter of 2026.
The winger banged in 6 goals and provided 7 assists in 11 matches for Shakhtar this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
He is considered to be one of the best wingers in Ukraine. As a member of Ukraine national football team, Mudryk won 8 caps.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Eddie Howe wants to sign a new winger and Mudryk is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The Newcastle United manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this winter.
The Magpies are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The 21-year-old will add a new dimension to Newcastle United’s attack.
According to the report, “Newcastle United are eyeing Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Mykhaylo Mudryk. The Ukraine international is being linked with a January move from Shakhtar. Arsenal have been linked with Mudryk, but Football Insider says Newcastle are now making a move. Mudryk is open to a move to Tyneside in 2023. The 21-year-old is said to be keen on a move to the Premier League, but could wait until the summer if Shakhtar progress to the Champions League play-offs. However, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe will try to get a deal done in January.”
Euro Football Rumours
It would take a huge offer from Newcastle United to prise the 21-year-old winger from Donetsk.
Shakhtar would be wise to keep the Ukraine international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.
Mykhaylo Mudryk ideal fit for Newcastle United?
If Newcastle United and Eddie Howe are seriously considering a winger, Mudryk could also prove to be a smart option.
Mykhaylo Mudryk has all the skillset required to be a success story at Newcastle. Therefore, it makes sense for Eddie Howe to step up his attempts to bring the Ukraine winger to Premier League side.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Newcastle.
It will be interesting to see if Newcastle United can beat their rivals to the winger’s signature.
