MANCHESTER UNITED have joined Arsenal in keeping tabs on Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhaylo Mudryk.
The 21-year-old Ukrainian wonderkid has been in sensational form this season, impressing in the Champions League.
He scored three times during the group stages, and was watched by Europe’s elite while netting against Celtic in September.
SunSport understands United have been tracking Mudryk for a while now, with scouts keeping watch.
Their Premier League rivals Arsenal are also believed to be interested as they look to add to their young squad.
But Erik ten Hag has been keen on the winger since his days as Ajax boss.
However, Shakhtar are reluctant to sell one of their prized assets on the cheap, and would demand a substantial fee.
It is unlikely United will go for him in January, after having huge investment in the squad over the past summer.
His ability to play on the wing and in the number ten role are big pluses for the Ukraine international.
The Red Devils have also looked at AC Milan star Rafael Leao as another potential target.
