Shakhtar Donetsk believe 21 year old Mykhailo Mudryk is a better player than Manchester United star Antony, according to a report on Metro.

Chelsea are in talks with Shakhtar Donetsk to sign the winger, who scored seven goals in the Ukrainian Premier League and three in the Champions League before the World Cup break.

Shakhtar Donetsk value Mudryk at around £85million because they believe he is better than Antony, who completed a £86m move to Manchester United last summer.

Premier League rivals Arsenal are also interested in signing the 21 year old winger.

Meanwhile, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed Chelsea have sealed the transfer of 21 year old Monaco centre-back Benoit Badiashile.

Romano also confirmed the France international has completed the main part of his Chelsea medical in London.

Romano tweeted: “Chelsea and AS Monaco have now all the documents in place for Badiashile deal.

“Main part of medical done. It’s sealed.”

The deal for the 21-year-old centre-back is worth in the region of €37-38million (£32.8m-£33.7m), according to The Athletic.
