Chelsea winger Mykhailo Mudryk has urged his club to sign 20-year-old midfielder Georgiy Sudakov who currently plays for Shakhtar Donetsk.
Both Mudryk and Sudakov are international teammates with the Ukraine national team.
The pair starred for Ukraine on Sunday evening as they came from behind to seal a 3-1 win over France in the quarter-final of the Under-21 European Championship.
Speaking about his assist to Sudakov after Ukraine defeated France, Mudryk said at his post-match press conference: “Usually it is the opposite—he gives it to me and I score. And now he scored a penalty, and I thought, I need to score more. I do everything for my friend. I hope he just keeps scoring. I am just promoting him!”
Asked if he would like to see Sudakov at Chelsea, Mudryk replied: “That would be great.”
