    However, Mykhaylo Mudryk’s 29th-minute equaliser saw both sides share the spoils in Poland.

    Mudryk begun his professional career with Shakhtar and the 21-year-old winger admitted that it would be hard to turn down an offer from a Premier League club, namely Arsenal.

    Speaking to CBS Sports in August, the Ukrainian said: “I think every guy dreams about the Premier League. It’s hard to say [who his preferred move is] but Arsenal is a very good team, very good coach, I like the way they play.”

    When asked if he would make a move to the Emirates Stadium he said: “From my side, I can’t say no [to Arsenal]. But the transfer is not only my decision.”
