NICE lead the chase for Ukraine winger Mykhaylo Mudryk despite Premier League interest.

The French side are willing to pay £25million plus extras for Mudryk but Shakhtar Donetsk want almost double.

Prem clubs were thought to be leading the race for Mudryk but Nice have stolen a march

Brentford are the main English club in the hunt despite attempts by Shakhtar to get Everton and Newcastle revved up to join in.

However the Bees and Co are waiting to see if Donetsk get through their Champions League group — with failure possibly lowering their sky-high valuation.

Arsenal are another team who are said to share an interest in the winger, dubbed the ‘Ukrainian Neymar’.

And Mudryk, 21, made no attempt to hide his excitement at the prospect of playing at the Emirates.

Speaking last month, he revealed: “My dream is to play in Premier League, of course.

“Arsenal is a very good team, very good manager – so from my side, I can’t say no to Arsenal!”

The Premier League outfit, who won the North London derby on Saturday, have drawn up contingency plans – with Villarreal’s Alex Baena being eyed up as an alternative.

Mudryk has started off the season in electric form, with two goals and six assists in six games for Shakhtar.

These include a goal and a brace of assists in matchday one of the Champions League.
