Shakhtar Donetsk sporting director Darijo Srna has told Arsenal that they will need to pay a huge fee to sign Mykhailo Mudryk.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with the winger in recent months, with Mikel Arteta keen to recruit a forward player to complement the side's existing attacking options.
And when Shakhtar faced the same opposition last season, he received a standing ovation from the Bernabeu faithful when he was substituted, as a result of his performance.
Mudryk has spoken about his future in recent days, and told Ukrainian TV presenter Vlada Sedan - the wife of Gunners star Oleksandr Zinchenko - about his views on Arsenal: "Yeah, I check on them on MyScore [football scores app], and when they're playing, I can check on them.
"I also watch them too. They are a very dynamic side in general, not just in controlling possession, but also in scoring goals."
Now, Shakhtar legend Srna has told Arsenal what they need to do to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.
Darijo Srna on Mudryk interest
Speaking to The Athletic, Srna said: "If somebody wants to buy Mudryk, they must pay huge, huge money. Otherwise the president of the club will not sell him.
"All the clubs must respect the president, respect Shakhtar and, in the end, they must respect Mykhailo Mudryk, who is one of the best players I saw. The price is so big."
He explained: "The market is deciding the price - not me.
"Antony, Grealish, they are players of more than €100m and, for me, Mudryk does not have less quality than them. This is the last two transfers in the past year, in more or less the same positions."
