Chelsea have agreed a deal worth £88.5m with Shakhtar Donetsk for winger Mykhailo Mudryk.

Chelsea’s co-owner Behdad Eghbali and director of global transfers Paul Winstanley flew into Antalya in Turkey – where Shakhtar are training – on Saturday to complete the deal before taking Mudryk back to the UK with them on their private jet.

Mudryk will undergo his medical in London on Sunday and is expected to be at Stamford Bridge to watch Chelsea play Crystal Palace.

Chelsea are confident of securing the transfer and have offered the 22-year-old a seven-and-a-half-year contract.

Arsenal remained in talks as recently as Friday but were prepared to walk away from the transfer if the deal was not right.

Chelsea will pay €70m (£62m) up front and €30m (£26.5m) in add-ons, which include winning the Champions League, Premier League and other individual performance-related conditions.

A statement from Shakhtar on Saturday night confirmed a deal was “very close”.

Chelsea then followed that with a statement of their own, confirming they were “discussing terms” over a transfer fee with Shakhtar.

“Should a deal be agreed between the two clubs then the Ukrainian international, who can operate as a winger or a forward, will discuss personal terms with the Blues ahead of a permanent transfer,” Chelsea added.
