Arsenal, Liverpool target Mudryk: This Man Utd star my inspiration

Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhaylo Mudryk admits he models his game on Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Ukraine international is a target for Liverpool and Arsenal ahead of the January market.

the 21-year-old revealed in an interview with The Times that he mirrors his game on the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Mudryk said: “It's more comfortable for me when I play on the line where I can show all my potential one against one. I have more space to move to the front and I can create a lot more chances when I play on the line.

"There are more people in the middle. But, you know, the middle is also OK for me. My inspiration is Cristiano Ronaldo because of what you can do if you work hard and believe in yourself.

"I like the way Cristiano plays. I see myself like that - a winger. But I need more time to change my position from 11 or 7 to 9. With time it is possible."
