FC Shakhtar

London-based Arsenal F.C. wants to acquire Shakhtar’s back Mykola Matviienko, Komanda №1 reports.

23-year-old Mykola Matviienko can join the ranks of Cannoneers already this winter. In addition to Arsenal, Manchester City showed its interest in Ukrainian player.

"Recently, my colleagues and I have been in constant contact with Arsenal’s representatives, we have meetings. The Cannoneers' representatives have already contacted Shakhtar and we hope that these negotiations will be successful. The Miners do not often sell the wards of their academy to leading clubs in Europe, so this transfer can be very significant for them. We should see how things go on, but Arsenal wants to make an agreement before February 1 - during the current transfer window," Yuriy Danchenko, Matviienko’s agent, commented on the situation.

It is worth noting that this season Mykola Matviinko played for Shakhtar Donetsk F.C. in 21 matches, scoring one goal and making one assist.

As we reported earlier, Shakhtar’s back Dodo (Domilson Cordeiro dos Santos - ed.) is in Bayern's area of interest, informed.

The German club has offered 25 million euros for the 21-year-old footballer. Miners want a minimum of 30 million euros for the Brazilian. Kicker denies that Bayern Munich is considering signing Brazillian player because the footballer does not meet the club's requirements. The amount of transfer is also believed to be one of the reasons.
