Mykhaylo Mudryk undergoes Chelsea medical ahead of €100m transfer

Mykhaylo Mudryk is undergoing his medical with Chelsea on Sunday morning, with the Blues hopeful of having a deal done before their meeting with Crystal Palace.

Chelsea officials flew out to Shakhtar Donetsk’s training camp in Turkey on Saturday and hurried through an agreement for Mudryk, who had been of significant interest to Arsenal during the January window.

The Blues have agreed a deal worth up to €100m, around €70m of which will be paid up front, while Arsenal’s final offer fell marginally short of that asking price.

Mudryk is now in London undergoing medical tests and, if all goes to plan, will sign a contract running until 2030.

The Ukraine international is expected to be in attendance at Stamford Bridge on Sunday to watch his prospective new employers in action, and sources have confirmed that Chelsea are hopeful of presenting him to supporters if a deal can be completed in time.

With negotiations over Mudryk wrapped up, Chelsea’s attention will return to other winter additions, with PSV Eindhoven winger Noni Madueke and Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram both on their wish list.

Madueke could leave PSV this month if the Dutch side receive a fee similar to the £37m Liverpool paid to sign Cody Gakpo earlier in the window, while Thuram is considering whether to pursue a January move or leave Gladbach as a free agent in the summer.
