Pundit suggests Liverpool should ‘jump at the chance’ to sign 21-year-old star that has lit up the Champions League recently

Posted by

Alan Hutton has explained why Liverpool ‘should jump at the chance’ to sign talented winger Mykhaylo Mudryk.

The Ukrainian has caught the attention of many clubs across Europe in recent weeks with his impressive displays.

The Shakhtar Donetsk winger, who currently has four years remaining on his contract, is lightning quick and single-handedly tore RB Leipzig apart in the Champions League recently scoring twice and registering an assist.

Although the Reds are believed to be looking to strengthen their midfield rather than their attacking options, former Premier League defender Hutton believes Jurgen Klopp will be one of the many managers interested in the Ukraine international’s signature in the coming months.

“You never shut any doors,” he told Football Insider (via TEAMtalk). “If an opportunity comes for a young, talented footballer that you believe you can make even better then the potential is there and of course you would jump at the chance.

“I think the Liverpool midfield needs a bit of work. But if Mudryk is available and he fancies Liverpool then you would jump at the chance.”

Shakhtar’s director, Darijo Srna, has explained that any club wanting to sign his star man will have to pay ‘a lot’ of money and explained that Mudryk is second to only Kylian Mbappe and Vinicius Jr in his position.

But with the way in which the winger has been performing in recent weeks, any hefty price tag is unlikely to put any potential suitors off from making their move.

We currently have Luis Diaz as our first-choice left winger and the Colombian has been superb so far this season.

With him now beginning to add goals to his game, it’s unlikely that the club will be willing to splash the cash on a new attacker who may struggle to break into our starting XI.

A whopping £64m was paid to Benfica for Darwin Nunez earlier this summer and it’s believed that Klopp is happy with his attacking options at the moment.

Midfield is the area that most Liverpool supporters would agree needs strengthening but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens either in January or at the end of the season.

Arsenal and Newcastle are also believed to be interested in Mudryk so it is certainly one to keep an eye on.
