Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Georgiy Sudakov has been talking up a move to the Premier League with Arsenal and Man City thought to be interested.

The Ukrainian midfielder made headlines when he scored for Shakhtar against Barcelona in a 2-1 defeat in the Champions League last month.

Then, on Tuesday, he played in side’s shock 1-0 victory over the LaLiga giants.

But if fans are wondering what Sudakov could bring to the Premier League should Arsenal and Man City’s interest turn into a deal, he’s now given supporters a summary of his style of play.

Speaking to The Telegraph, the Ukrainian compared himself to ‘James Maddison and Phil Foden’.

The England stars aren’t the only Premier League names Sudakov mentioned in his interview, either.

Former Shakhtar star Mudryk, who moved to Chelsea last January for £88.5m, played with Sudakov, and the 21-year old has joked his fellow Ukrainian is missing his assists.

Sudakov also revealed that Mudryk, who snubbed Arsenal in favour of Chelsea, is giving him transfer advice.

“Misha is my close friend and we talk a lot,” said Sudakov. “I already received some precious advice from him, in case I move to England.

“How to adapt, how it’s not easy to get into the pace of the game, so for me it’s very useful advice.

“He recommends moving to a top championship like the Premier League as quickly as possible because to develop your game it helps to adapt more quickly, physically and psychologically.”

Sudakov added: “Misha has got huge potential and perhaps one of the reasons why you didn’t see him at the top level in England yet is because he is saying there is not such a player like a Sudakov who constantly delivers with top passes and assists for him!”

Sudakov made his debut for Shakhtar Donetsk in 2020, coming on in the 3-2 victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League.

He’s since scored 13 times and provided 13 assists in 80 appearances.
