Hammers send scouts to watch £13.5m ace

West Ham sent scouts to watch Mykhaylo Mudryk earlier this week as Ukraine lost to Scotland, according to 90min.

The report claims that half a dozen Premier League clubs were present at the game earlier this week, which Scotland won 3-0, thanks to a John McGinn goal and a Lyndon Dykes brace.

Mudryk, valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, plays for Shakhtar Donetsk and has been impressing for the Ukrainian side, scoring two goals in two Champions League games, as well as laying on two assists in the shock 4-1 win over RB Leipzig.

Arsenal and Chelsea scouts are said to have been at the game solely to watch Mudryk, but there were also representatives from Brentford, Brighton, Everton, Leeds, Newcastle, and Wolves, along with the Irons, who were present.

Shakhtar defender Mykola Matvienko and Dynamo Kyiv winger Viktor Tsygankov were also being watched by scouts but it seems that Mudryk was the centre of attention for the Irons.
