It seems like Shakhtar more or less have to sell all of their players, so I am hopeful that Brentford are able to get their hands on this lad.
Might have one or two others that are worth looking at then if that is the case.

Slightly uncomfortable with gaining an advantage from this situation. Hope we do the decent thing by Shakhtar, maybe involving the sell on, but then who knows, with that part of Ukraine in particular, how the geopolitical landscape will look in the future.

Then again, if we don't take advantage someone else will and it is good for the players themselves potentially. It's a tricky one

From the rumoured prices for their players I think clubs are doing right by them as there’s likely to be plenty of competition.

This one's gone a bit quiet? Did he ever come over do we know? He appeared to be playing for Shaktar when he was rumoured to be training with us.

Not sure. However one thing I would note is Solomon who everyone has reported is a done deal to Fulham is still training and playing for Shakhtar, so there is a possibility there is an agreement in place and we’ll just wait until Shakhtar finish their tour to complete the deal, as first team friendlies are probably more beneficial than B team games for him.

I check Twitter every day for news, keeping my fingers crossed. Announce Mudryk, you cowards!!!

Having read the article, still at the speculative stage.
Nothing more than Leverkusen interested, working on it & suggesting the transfer fee is 20M Euros (what they state we offered in January).
The level of other clubs interested (AC Milan, Juve, Sevilla) if true makes him very hot property.

Very hot indeed! And I do still think that we have a good argument to make, as a now-Premier league club should be able to get close in terms of money, and also more exposure and playing time than some of the other clubs.

True he would deffo get more playing time here, at least I think he would. Still think those other teams could offer substantially more wages however.

Bayer Leverkusen could potentially lure him with the offer of Champions League football. They are currently third in the Bundesliga.

Fixed ;)

Remember we signed Mbeumo when Marseille were interested and Maupay when Brighton were interested due to the all round offer and that was when we were mid table in the Championship.
Not saying everyone always wants to sign for us as #1 choice but it is not just a case of scanning down a list of clubs by league position.

Money wise, Leverkusen received the third highest TV money in the Bundesliga last season, €88m, but if repeated this season, but that is still lower than what 20th place in the PL gets you. Leverkusen may get more from a European run though, I haven't checked that.

I think the Mudryk to Leverkusen links are propagated on them receiving a top dollar fee for Moussa Diaby (+ £40m).

Arsenal are apparently interested but I can't quite see where MD would fit in there as he plays in Saka's position.

Saka to City or Liverpool if Ars* don’t make champ league? Their history in keeping their stars is awful!

We beat Leverkusen to Ajer last summer so I wouldn't be overly concerned, everything being equal etc.

Suspect this one will run and run until his agent runs out of clubs to tout him to.

It may very well be a choice of a 'top Bundesliga side' over a 'mid table PL side' but they are just moments in time and as with anything in life are not set in stone.

As with Vanderson to Monaco, we are competing with clubs who can offer the likelihood of Champions League football. Feels slightly bizarre to be competing for signatures with such clubs, but wonderful too, even if it doesn't always come off. And this one is not a done deal yet, still might be twists and turns

A shame if so but better to find out now than in the final days of August.

From Lyall via Sky Sports Transfer Centre:

Leverkusen rivalling Brentford for Shakhtar's Mudryk​

Bayer Leverkusen are rivalling Brentford for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk.
The Bees have not yet been able to reach an agreement with Mudryk despite negotiations with Shakhtar said to have gone smoothly so far.
Sky Sports News has also been told that both Shakhtar and Mudryk have reservations about parting ways while war remains ongoing in Ukraine.
Shakhtar remain hopeful they will be able to compete next season and have been handed a place in the Champions League group stage.
But their ability to take part looks highly doubtful, with no end to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in sight.
Fighting around the capital Kyiv, where Shakhtar have been playing since fighting broke out in 2014, has eased in recent weeks.
However, conflict remains intense in the Donbas region, where Donetsk is the capital.

I see he started (and scored) in a 2-1 friendly win over Borussia Monchengladbach last night.

I am not going to watch his clips only to be disappointed if we don't sign him,
Touch of the Bullseye, look what you could have won.
